4.6 million people played Destiny beta

Activision and Bungie have revealed that the Destiny beta that took place from July 17th through the 26th was played by more than 4.6 million people across PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

This pretty much sets up Destiny as one of the biggest games of the year. Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs debuted to strong sales of 6.2 million when it released so it will be interesting to see if Bungie’s online shooter can do better than that come September 9th.
