Bungie Kills 6.5 Million Characters in Destiny

The beta for Destiny is over, and you probably already knew it was going to happen, but they’ve officially wiped their servers meaning that the 6.5 million characters created by the 4.6 million players are completely gone, forever.

At least the studio has decided to send out a few words to help you grieve: “When we reinvent the world where the guardians live, sometime we have to leave them behind.” This isn’t really a huge news item since all companies that run betas eventually wind up wiping the stats and characters on their servers since it would put the beta players at a much higher footing than those who just purchase the game, and Crom knows we can’t let THAT happen. I just wanted an excuse to play the video clip above.
