Activision has revealed that the PlayStation Beta for Bungie’s Destiny will begin in July. Announced today during the company’s quarterly conference call, the beta will arrive first for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 players who have pre-ordered those versions of the game.
Activision also made one thing abdundantly clear about Destiny in their earnings statement and forward looking comments. The company believes that this is their next “billion dollar franchise”, and that it’s the biggest new ip launch in some time.
What should PlayStation Destiny players expect from the beta? Bungie’s been tight-lipped about what will be included, but a proper test of the game would likely want to stress test online connectivity for a game that is built around the connected experience.
Destiny is due out on September 9th for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
