Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg, said: "This is the biggest beta of this console generation by a wide margin and the largest console beta ever for a new video game IP to date. Hosting a beta at this scale is an incredible feat, so we're thrilled to see the phenomenal response". The beta of Destiny had people talking across the world, as it gave gamers a chance to look at Bungie's big new game, especially considering Activision has put aside $500 million for the franchise so far.
