Destiny beta to begin this summer

The beta for Bungie's Destiny is coming in summer, publisher Activision has announced. This narrows its previous target of early 2014, but could mean it will miss the first half of the year.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg gave the updated window during the company's most recent earnings call (via CVG). As previously reported, the beta will be available on all announced platforms (PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One) and pre-ordering from participating retailers will get you early access. It's set to release on September 9.
