Destiny Launch Date

"Destiny has always represented a new beginning for our team. It was born from brave possibilities. We dreamed of a renewed and independent Bungie. We found partners willing to bet big on some crazy new ideas with us." - Bungie

The story is too old to be commented.

worldwide launch of Destiny will happen on September 9th. Accordingly, the Destiny Beta will kick off in the summer of 2014, available first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.


Lalanana2843d ago

Cool but wow. I never expected it to be so late. I was thinking April or June lol.. Good news either way. :-)

Abash2843d ago

This means Destiny vs. Halo Xbox One next holiday, boy wonder how that will go?

tdogchristy902843d ago

Yeah, everything pointed to Q2, April/June.

guitarded772843d ago

Yeah, I'm not shocked, but I was hoping for spring. Can't wait to play it with friends.

Lawndart19812843d ago

The delay puts it in the 2014 holiday sales window and buys the dev team a chance to avoid a BF4-esque launch... so overall I see it as a good call, especially announcing the delay now, people are still pissed about how the Watch Dogs and Driveclub press released were timed

Ashunderfire862843d ago

Destiny will also go against the Division this fall. Both games will own Halo 5 and Call of Duty!!!!

badz1492843d ago

This is Activision we're talking about. they always release their big games fall and onward. If they could, they would release it in November but that is their CoD month, so September is good enough to give Destiny its own breathing room.

hakeem09962843d ago

cool 1 day before my birthday . i guess i know what gift to ask my wife

P0werVR2843d ago

Darn it all! Date seemed stated for Q2 for sure everywhere. Well Titanfall will fill the void either way .


Halo One will be AMAZING! Can't wait.

nukeitall2843d ago (Edited 2843d ago )


Why limit yourself to just Destiny or Halo?

Get both and be in gaming bliss!!!

In the meanwhile, enjoy Titanfalls and Watchdog. :D

Gasian2842d ago

@lalanana if you look at bungies past three game releases they were in september. But yeah I thought they would release earlier as well.

Dayam september!?!?

Bleh, need to forget this game for awhile then.

Sevir2843d ago

They always said Fall 2014 for the Full release of the game. Kinda Bummed they pushed the beta to the summer

abstractel2843d ago

I'm disappointed. Seems all next-gen games are getting pushed back. The Crew, Infamous SS (initially they said Feb), Driveclub, Watch Dogs etc. Going to be a serious drought for next-gen gaming for a few months unless a game surprises us with an earlier launch.

We might see Thief in Feb but that game doesn't look like my cup of tea and doesn't seem to be pushing the systems like other next-gen titles.

Xer0_SiN2843d ago

cant wait to see bungie goodness on a playstation system >=).

combatcash2843d ago

Xer0_SiN tons of unappreciated quality in their games its all in the details with these guys I'm looking forward to this game :)

come_bom2843d ago (Edited 2843d ago )

Destiny at September and beta in June/July, so late!... "scared" by all the Titanfall hype?

xDHAV0K24x2842d ago

No fanboy shit but that's definitely a reason. Gonna love Destiny. Glad there's time in b/w both games

ELpork2842d ago

"Available first"... Sweet, I'll get my PC version... FEW! for a second there I thought I was gonna have to buy a console.

Majin-vegeta2842d ago

Lol there's no PC version.It was referring to console versions.Sony players get it first.

ELpork2842d ago

Miss read that! Crap thing to do, but I can dream...

September...I could end up being poisoned by then

Jughead34162843d ago

lol....Yeah, this is disappointing to me because I'm anticipating this game so much. My most anticipated game actually. I know this delay means a better experience in the end, but it's disappointing to wait that long. Basically a year from now.

tdogchristy902843d ago

NOOOOOO!!! I can't wait that long (sarcasm) what do I do? I don't want to wait that long for next gen but this is the first game I've seen that makes me want next gen. I don't want to buy if there is nothing I want. NOOOOOOO!!! WHY Destiny, why make me wait this long. NOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Sarcasm2843d ago

Don't ask me, I don't know what to do either!

ovnipc2843d ago

Well titanfall until this release. If its going to have exclusive content on ps4 im getting it for ps. Anyone know whats infamous ss and the order 1886 dates?

GoPanthers9992843d ago

X1 and Titanfall are calling your name. Already onboard here, come on over.

JackBNimble2843d ago

maybe pc and Titanfall ...X1? ..hahaha

CaptainCamper2843d ago

Lol...So my local GAME store has been taking pre-orders for a game that's a year from release?

They said February was expected beta date. How long do they need a beta to be?

Funantic12843d ago (Edited 2843d ago )

Exactly. That's how the preorder numbers end up looking so high. They have the preorders available way before the launch. By then Destiny would have been available for preorders for almost 2 years. Titanfall didn't have the preorders available until about 5-6 months ago and will release as soon as March. So going off Vchartz to determine how well preordered games will sell is unreliable considering some games were preordered over 1 1/2 - 2 years ago and some just a few months ago. One more thing Destiny has some stiff competition coming at the end of 2014.

Jughead34162843d ago

So, what are we going to play before then? The first half of the year is always kind of slow. Especially the summer time. For PS4, we'll have Driveclub, Infamous, MLB The Show, Evil Within (I think). What else?

Sevir2843d ago

There is plenty coming next year in the first half of the year for both consoles,

For PS4
The Evil Within
Dying Light
Final Fantasy 14 Online
Deep Down.
The Witcher 3
Metal Gear Solid 5:Ground Zeros
The Crew

Titan Fall
Quantum Break
Dying Light
The Evil Within
Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zero
The Witcher 3
The Crew

No need to wonder whats releasing, Pretty sure we'll have even a clearer understanding as VGX gets underway tomorrow, No need to worry about the first half, 3rd party and first party has both these systems covered.

elmaton982842d ago

Man thanks sevir, that was a really nice list for both systems.

SIRHC132843d ago

So much for expecting Spring...
