Destiny Beta Characters Won’t Transfer to Full Game, Bungie Confirms

August 9, 2014Written by Zarmena Khan


This news is going to stun the world. Not really. It was a beta after all. But since a lot of fans have been dying for an official confirmation, Bungie has confirmed in this week’s update that our Destiny beta characters will not transfer to the full game. As a matter of fact, “vaults have been cleaned out, too.”

Joining Community Manager David ‘Deej’ Dague this week was Bungie designer Tyson Green who said:

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. 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.

Don’t forget that Bungie is scheduled to make an appearance at Gamescom. In response to a question asking if there are any more secrets to be revealed about Destiny before its launch, Deej hinted that there may be some news to share at the event which fans will be interested in. Stay tuned to find out!
