Destiny to release on September 9

Update: VGX 2013 trailer now included!

Bungie's Destiny has been given a release date. The studio's first game under the Activision umbrella will arrive on September 9, 2014 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. The beta, meanwhile, has been pushed back to summer (missing its previous early 2014 window) with PS4/PS3 owners able to get the first crack at it.

"We first shared the design pillars of Destiny less than one year ago," said Bungie community manager David 'DeeJ' Dague in a blog post (via IGN). "We promised to redefine what players should expect from a Bungie game. We said we wanted to change the way people play games together. We set our bar high. For us, Destiny represents a once in a lifetime opportunity."

As stated previously, the Destiny beta will be available to anyone that pre-orders the game.
