Beta expected to hit PlayStation 4 in June.

Destiny 2

An alleged poster revealing a September 8 release date and pre-launch beta for Destiny 2 has surfaced online.

The poster, allegedly from GameStop Italy, first appeared on Italian website Lega Network, before a second posting appeared on Imgur. Eurogamer is corroborating the leak in saying that its sources have indicated the poster is legitimate. (Update: According to Kotaku, Destiny 2 will be officially announced today.) (Update 2: Never mind. Destiny 2 won’t be announced today. It will be announced “soon,” according to Kotaku’s Jason Schreier.)

The poster is PlayStation-branded and features a PlayStation-exclusive content label. Sony also had a partnership with Activision on the original Destiny for timed exclusive content. The beta is mentioned at the bottom. According to Eurogamer’s Tom Phillips, it is supposed to launch with early access for PlayStation 4 users “around June.”

Officially, Activision has announced that it will release Destiny 2 this fall.
