Activision reveals the Destiny beta numbers.
The impressive numbers for Bungie's Destiny beta have been revealed today by Activision.
A whopping 4,638,937 people logged on and played the beta for the new IP between July 17th and July 28th, with PlayStation fans enjoying the game for 2 weeks and Xbox fans joining in for the final week.
"This is the biggest beta of this console generation by a wide margin and the largest console beta ever for a new video game IP to date," said Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg,
"Hosting a beta at this scale is an incredible feat, so we're thrilled to see the phenomenal response. But the beta is just a taste of what's to come. We're counting down the days to our launch day, September 9th."
Bungie's Pete Parsons continued: "We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta.
"We surpassed even our own goals and the feedback was invaluable. We cannot thank the community enough, the response was humbling and in the weeks ahead we'll be working hard to ensure that Destiny lives up to the expectations at launch."
Destiny arrives on September 9th on PS4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
