Destiny 2 beta release date – beta release date leak – Pre-order Destiny 2 for beta access
There is some rather compelling evidence that the Destiny 2 beta release date will be on 7/17/17. Although Bungie, the developer of the Destiny series has not officially announced the Destiny 2 beta release date as of yet, we have some really big clues. If you watch the May 18th game play stream from Bungie, there’s a still image of the load out screen. There you can see a score of 17177 and the other number just to the right of it is 98. We know 9/8 is the actual game release date, 98 = 9/8. So could 17177 be the beta release date backwards? I’ll explain why I’m 100% convinced it is.
Update: So it looks like I was off by a day. The Destiny 2 beta release date was announced at E3. Below are the start dates.
PS4 Pre order: 7/18/17 10am PST – 7/23/17
Xbox pre order: 7/19/17 10am PST – 7/23/17
Open: 7/21/17 10am PST – 7/23/17
Destiny 2 beta release date
Here’s why I feel this is Bungie telling us the beta date. As I said the number to the right of the score is 98 which happens to be the game’s actual release date of 9/8. We’ve also established that 171777 backwards is 7/17/17. This date just happens to be Bungie day and the date the original Destiny game beta was released back in 2014. Also consider the fact that it is a date that makes sense. It’s close enough to the launch date and early enough for them to find flaws and fix them. This date is also right in between E3 and the Gamescom summer conferences. Add all this up and it’s just too much evidence to ignore. Only time will tell but I’d say it’s safe to take the day off work on 7/17/17.
Even though I’m sure 7/17/17 is the beta release date, many of you might not be convinced. Be sure to check this post later as I will be updating it once the Destiny 2 beta release date is confirmed.
New Destiny 2 information
Bungie has given us a little more detail on the plot of Destiny 2 along with some information on the game play mechanics. The biggest change from the original Destiny is there will be an in game match making system for end game content this time around. Many fans were upset by the fact the original did not have match making for trials, nightfalls and raids. Players were forced to use third party apps or websites to find additional players for these game modes. The new guided games system as it’s called is a welcome addition to Destiny 2.
One of the other details recently confirmed are the the new subclasses. Each class will have a new subclass with new abilities. The new subclasses are Warlock’ s dawnblade, Hunter’s arcstrider and the Titan’ s Sentinal.
In addition, another big change is the weapon slots. Destiny 1 allowed you 1 primary, 1 special and 1 heavy. Destiny 2’s weapon slots are called kinetic, energy and power. It sounds like the weapon slots are a bit more flexible in the sequel. From what I can tell you should be able to use more than one type of weapon as long as it’s not the same damage type.
One more change from the original is sure to make all Destiny fans happy. You no longer need to go to orbit to change activities. You can go to any of the games activities from where ever you happen to be playing. This will save precious game time for everyone.

Destiny 2 beta release date summary
Bungie is staying true to it’s form by slowly releasing more and more details about Destiny 2 and of course they love giving us possible clues to the information we are desperately seeking. First they confirmed there would be a beta, now that it’s going to be this summer with a possible hidden hint of the actual date. Hopefully soon we will have a confirmed beta release date.
I was hoping it would be towards the beginning of this summer but I suppose mid summer is OK too. Out of all the games set to be released this year, I’m most excited about Destiny 2. The beta should help me get my Destiny fix until the full game comes out in September. No matter when the actual date for the beta release is one thing is for sure, if you pre-order Destiny 2 now, you will get early access to the Beta.
