Activision has released details about the recent beta for Bungie’s upcoming first-person shooter Destiny. The beta period kicked off on July 16 and closed on Sunday, and in the intervening period, the game logged over 4,638,937 unique players. According to Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg, the program marked “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.” Bungie COO Pete Parsons added that they “cannot thank the community enough” and that “the response was humbling.”

Destiny is scheduled to launch on September 9 for 360, PS3, PS4, and Xbox One.
