Bungie announced the release date for Destiny overnight, as all of you are aware of by now.

The date was dropped on the official Facebook page for the game, and later on the Bungie website.

“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.”

Destiny will launch worldwide on September 9 and the Destiny Beta will kick off in the summer of 2014, first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

The game will also be released on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The latest information on the game came out of the new edition of Game Informer. Read all about it here.
