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.

Since then, Destiny has continued to reveal its promise. Every new build brings us closer to our original vision. With those goals in sight, we intend to use every moment from now until the release of the game to ensure that Destiny lives up to your expectations, and our own.

David Dague went on to talk about that the feedback so far for the multiplatform video game, adding that the delay was the “right decision.” You can take a look at his statement below:

The early support and enthusiasm for Destiny has been inspiring and humbling. We believe this is the right decision for our game, our studio, and our passionate community. Thank you for coming along with us on this adventure.

However, the video game now has an official release date of Sept. 9, 2014. The play test has also been pushed back into the summer with PS3 and PS4 players still having first access.
