According to Bungie, exactly 4,638,937 million people played the recent Destiny beta, making it the biggest beta event for a new IP ever.
“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,” Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said in a statement reported by GameSpot. “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 COO Pete Parsons also said Bungie was “totally blown away” by the interest.
Destiny releases Sept. 9 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
