Your Destiny Will Be Fulfilled on 9th September

Posted by Sammy Barker

See you starside

And that's our bedtime pushed back an extra hour. In an effort to beat the rapidly approaching VGX Awards fanfare, Bungie has nonchalantly announced that its upcoming first-person shooter Destiny will deploy on 9th September. The game's due out on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and will secure exclusive content on Sony's systems as part of a long-term co-marketing partnership with publisher Activision.

"Destiny has always represented a new beginning for our team," the company said in a blog post on its official website. "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."

The developer added: "Since then, Destiny has continued to reveal its promise. Every new build brings us closer to our original vision. With those goals in sight, we intend to use every moment from now until the release of the game to ensure that Destiny lives up to your expectations, and our own."

The game was originally penciled in for the Spring, so this new date represents a sizable (but not exactly unexpected) delay for the release. It looks like the beta has been pushed back too, as the studio mentions that it's now due in the Summer. Fortunately, as previously promised, PlayStation owners will still get the first look at the game. We'll be dreaming of stars tonight.

September is a far cry from the initial idea of Spring 2014. I would have loved Destiny early-ish next year - even for the summer - but it's looking more and more likely that I'll still be doing a lot of my gaming on PS3 well into 2014.

I'm still on the fence about Destiny, so this delay gives me more than enough time to make my decision on whether or not to pre-order.

Kind of disappointing it's getting pushed back so late, but as long as DriveClub, Thief, inFamous: Second Son and MLB 14 The Show stay on track, I'll have enough to play on PS4. If Ubisoft can make Watch_Dogs good and hit a 2014 spring release, that'd be awesome too, but I'm not counting on that. Right now I'm still standing by what I've posted before that the only way Watch_Dogs has a chance of being worth a damn is if it's scrapped and Ubi starts over from scratch.

Yeah, it's a shame. I guess they announced that Spring window prematurely and realised that they'll need a lot more time to finish it up. I think this puts additional pressure on inFAMOUS to be outstanding.

Nice.

I can see FPS gamers buying this game in spades. It's going to be awesome.

I fell out of love with the FPS genre after all the yearly doses of COD etc.

I'm still sticking with Uncharted for PS4 as my only launch day purchase of 2014. Provided it comes out then of course. Lol.

Until then, PS PLUS on PS4 will keep me entertained. Can't wait for Out Last. : D

1. Announce beta and early 2014 release.
2. Advertise pre order bonus and take peoples money.
3. Delay the game 6months.

as if no one at bungie knew the game wouldn't be ready, especially by 6 months.

This is either Bungie being wankers (which I doubt) or Activision thinking lets get some money in the bank by promising the world then delivering it 6months late.

it pisses me off that they really pushed the beta in everyones face and really implied it would be early jan, yet suddenly everythings fucking delayed.

I really really hope its worth the wait because if it isn't ill lose all faith in Bungie, Activisions new puppets.

Disappointing but as ambitious as this game appears to be hopefully it is for the better. They want this game to exist for 10 years so they need to make sure it is solid from the start.

Not a problem. I don't need an immediate backlog on my ps4. I already have a backlog on my vita and a few games left on my ps3, I think there will be enough in the next six months to keep me happy
