Activision announced some new details about Destiny on its first quarter earnings call. In addition to reaffirming expectations that Bungie's latest will be a $1 billion franchise, we know when to expect the public beta.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg says that the game is on track for release on September 9 and may set a record for the largest numbers of pre-orders for a new IP. Players will get access to the public beta in July.


Our Take
Activision and Bungie will be making us hope for a few rainy days this summer so we can stay inside and explore the beta.
