In this era of often disappointing delays in the games we're dying to play, Bungie has posted a heartening developer diary that indicates that the development of Destiny is "on track" for the announced September 9th release date. In fact, it is said to be "hurtling" to the date at epic speed.
For you, that means the floodgates are about to burst wide open. Earlier this week, we cracked the lid on our pre-alpha build for a few dozen journalists. We nervously hovered, hoping what they saw and played lived up to their expectations for us. We huddled in the aftermath, wondering what they’ll tell you about what we’ve been up to – about the promises we’ve made.You’ll be hearing from them soon. They’ll be loaded with shiny new assets. It will mark the beginning of your true introduction into the world of Destiny. We hope, more than anything, that you love what you see.Pre-Alpha itself is just a beginning. It leads us into Alpha proper, and you into Beta, but it’s already keeping us up late into the night. Though we’re bleary-eyed and exhausted with the day-to-day challenge of keeping Destiny ON TRACK, the tiny sampling offered by our Pre-Alpha is already hugely motivating. For many of us, especially those who have never had the opportunity to see what it’s like to ship a new IP, it’s been downright monumental – a testament to what this team is truly capable of and the foundation, we hope, for a game experience we can all feel proud to put our name on and shout, “I made that!”
