"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
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. https://encrypted-tbn3.gsta...
Cool but wow. I never expected it to be so late. I was thinking April or June lol.. Good news either way. :-)
This means Destiny vs. Halo Xbox One next holiday, boy wonder how that will go?
Yeah, everything pointed to Q2, April/June.
Yeah, I'm not shocked, but I was hoping for spring. Can't wait to play it with friends.
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
Destiny will also go against the Division this fall. Both games will own Halo 5 and Call of Duty!!!!
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.
cool 1 day before my birthday . i guess i know what gift to ask my wife
Darn it all! Date seemed stated for Q2 for sure everywhere. Well Titanfall will fill the void either way . @Abash Halo One will be AMAZING! Can't wait.
@abash: Why limit yourself to just Destiny or Halo? Get both and be in gaming bliss!!! In the meanwhile, enjoy Titanfalls and Watchdog. :D
@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.
They always said Fall 2014 for the Full release of the game. Kinda Bummed they pushed the beta to the summer
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.
cant wait to see bungie goodness on a playstation system >=).
Xer0_SiN tons of unappreciated quality in their games its all in the details with these guys I'm looking forward to this game :)
Destiny at September and beta in June/July, so late!... "scared" by all the Titanfall hype?
No fanboy shit but that's definitely a reason. Gonna love Destiny. Glad there's time in b/w both games
"Available first"... Sweet, I'll get my PC version... FEW! for a second there I thought I was gonna have to buy a console.
Lol there's no PC version.It was referring to console versions.Sony players get it first.
Bungie already confirmed no PC version: http://www.pcgamer.com/2013...
Miss read that! Crap thing to do, but I can dream...
September...I could end up being poisoned by then
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.
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!!!
Chemically induced coma.
Don't ask me, I don't know what to do either!
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?
X1 and Titanfall are calling your name. Already onboard here, come on over.
maybe pc and Titanfall ...X1? ..hahaha
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?
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.
Don't ask Bethesda!!
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?
There is plenty coming next year in the first half of the year for both consoles, For PS4 Driveclub Infamous:SS Theif Watch_Dogs The Evil Within Dying Light Final Fantasy 14 Online Deep Down. The Witcher 3 Metal Gear Solid 5:Ground Zeros The Crew XB1 Thief Titan Fall Quantum Break Dying Light Watch_Dogs 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.
Man thanks sevir, that was a really nice list for both systems.
So much for expecting Spring...
they saw titanfall :)
Let's be honest, of course they'll be respectful of such a great title, but with a talented team like Bungie (the freaking creators of Halo) at the helm and the massive positive momentum it has going for it, i don't think it's such a massive threat to their sales they'd outright delay it for 6+ months. Maybe Ride To Hell vs Battlefield would cause that situation but not 2 titans (pun intended) like Titanfall vs Destiny.
lol at Bungie being a bit scared of Titan fall :P
If you've supported Bungie for a while now, you'd realise that the release date was expected. Most people on this site won't realise but, look at when all the Halo games were released. See a trend on their release dates?
And what was titanfall scared of to launch mid spring instead of late fall?
So we pre-ordered to wait a year for the game?
Well, I preordered on Amazon, and they don't charge me until it ships, so I'm okay. Got my code for the beta when it's ready.
Good maybe it wont be broken like bf
Silver linings :)
"in a galaxy far far away" thats how far away the game seems...sigh
My prodiction was only slightly off when they showed it 2 days before PS4's announcement, that santa would bring it xmas day 2014
I knew we were getting extra content for PS4, but didn't know we were getting it before xbone as well. Either system you have though, i think this is a must have. I'm just very dissapointed that it is coming so late, i was hoping this christmas! /:
Only the beta. Not the actual game.
I thought it was gonna be sooner than that, but it seems Fall 2014 is gonna be awesome
This gives me time to focus on other titles (TITANFALL) cough cough for a lil while anyway. There are some other(Watch Dogs) pretty decent titles on the way not to mention some neat DLC for TLoU and ACIV too. That's only the tip of the ice berg! Also, the game may have been ready earlier, but with consumer backlash on games not being "complete" already this gen = good move Bungie.
I like many here am a bit caught off guard by the release being September. I was always under the impression it would be a late Spring release. Oh well just gives me something to look forward to around my Birthday. :)
Its likely because of Titanfall releasing in March. They didn't want gamers having to pick between the two games to get. I prefer a later date.
I don't believe destiny was ever set to be released any time around march. And also, I think in a bungie vs. respawn matchup, bungie wins that one anyway (just my opinion). But no doubt a game like destiny needs all the dev time it can get. I'd rather wait then for them to rush it out. Besides, I'll be shocked if Titanfall doesn't get delayed. I hope it doesn't though.
Sorry to tell you, but Titanfall is a HARD date. Dream on!
I don't think Bungie would be worried about titanfall, if anything it would be the other way around.
Its nothing to do with been scared, but Bungie wants to make as much money, from the game as possible and releasing it in the month or month after Titanfall would have likely hit sales on the XB1 and PC By waiting people will have played the heck out of titanfall and will be ready for Destiny. I don't believe Halo is a serious worry. I think Destiny will sell great because they moved the date to September.
I see your point. why release it at the same time as another hit in the same genre. Of course releasing before christmas would have helped too. from the look of it, the game isn't even close to ready though since they are talking about well into next year release.
All the previous Halo games were released on either September or November. The release date of Destiny is just keeping with the tradition.
So i'll be buying my PS4 till September 9, 2014. Damn it. Might as well wait till Black Friday 2014. Im sure it will go on special for 35.99 like most launch titles did this year.
Yay....right at the beginning of my junior year of college. Instead of over the summer. T_T
by that time i wont care and i wont be playing it.. titanfall and 20 other top end games will come out b4 it and require my time
Happy to see a developers that will not put out cap because of deadlines...
I agree it is smart but a bit disappointed that they lead us on to think it was a march release for it to be delayed by so much. I would much rather it be like the Division says and have it listed later so they could possibly push it forward a few weeks.
Just in time for the fall semester. Additionally, Destiny may cannibalize the new Call of Duty's sales if its quality significantly overshadows it, in my opinion.
So far off, kinda sad there isn't a pc version of the game and there is of old gen. Sad face.
Yea, if the new consoles are basically PCs, then it seems like it would be easy to port it over, but what do I know
