After months of anticipation, Bungie has finally announced the release date for Destiny: September 9, 2014.

Over on the developer's blog, community manager DeeJ wrote that Destiny “has always represented a new beginning for our team. It was born from brave possibilities. We dreamed of a renewed and independent Bungie. We found partners willing to bet big on some crazy new ideas with us.”

"We first shared the design pillars of Destiny less than one year ago," the post continues. "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."

For many next-gen console owners, the release date is probably a bit later than hoped for, but on the plus side the beta will start this summer. Anyone who pre-orders Destiny (while supplies last) will receive access to the beta; however, the beta will first become available on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 platforms. Additionally, PS4 owners will also have access to "exclusive content" forDestiny, though nothing has been revealed yet.

Meanwhile, Bungie is expected to debut some new footage of Destiny tomorrow during VGX.
