Bungie’s “shared-world” sci-fi shooter Destiny will be released on September 9, 2014, the developer has announced.

The much anticipated game will hold a beta over the northern hemisphere’s summer. It comes first to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Destiny is also coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Destiny has always represented a new beginning for our team. It was born from brave possibilities,” said the developer. “We dreamed of a renewed and independent Bungie. We found partners willing to bet big on some crazy new ideas with us.

“We first shared the design pillars of Destiny less than one year ago. We promised to redefine what players should expect from a Bungie game. We said we wanted to change the way people play games together. We set our bar high. For us, Destiny represents a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
