The Destiny beta was played by over 4.6 million people, Activision announced.
To be exact, a total of 4,638,937 unique players participated. The beta began first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on July 17, later opening up to Xbox One and Xbox 360 players, and ended on July 27.
“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,” said Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg. “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.”
