Bungie Announces Destiny Release Date

Destiny, Bungie's upcoming space-bound shared-world shooter, will launch on September 9th of next year, the studio has just confirmed.

"Today, in partnership with Activision, we are proud to announce that the worldwide launch of Destiny will happen on September 9th," Bungie shared on its website. "Accordingly, the Destiny Beta will kick off in the summer of 2014, available first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

"The early support and enthusiasm for Destiny has been inspiring and humbling. We believe this is the right decision for our game, our studio, and our passionate community. Thank you for coming along with us on this adventure."

While September 9th does seem like quite a ways off right now, the first half of 2014 looks to be loaded with plenty of great games that will hopefully keep us busy right up until the launch of Bungie's highly anticipated epic.

More information on Destiny will be revealed tomorrow night at VGX, so check back here at GameRevolution this weekend for all the details.
