Bungie has confirmed that characters created during the Destiny beta, will not be transferred to the final game.
“Since the beta, we’ve continued to tune and adjust the game. The way you earn experience has been adjusted up and down a bunch of times. Items have been added and removed. New features toggled,” explained Bungie designer Tyson Green. “Although there’s no single monumental change, the sum of the tweaks leaves characters from the beta build in strange shape that would be confusing at best, broken at worst.”
“This is the last time we’ll ask you to part with your hero,” community manager David Dague added. “On September 9th, you can create a Guardian who will keep you company for a good, long time. On a long-enough timeline, you might decide to delete him or her and start over again – but that will be your call to make.”
According to Activision the Destiny beta in July was played by 4,638,937 unique players. Destiny is scheduled to release on September 9th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
