Bungie Wants To Push Their Servers In The Destiny Beta

Bungie hopes that the Destiny beta will have a smooth launch for its online features. Their senior writer, Eric Osborne, explains the importance of cramming their servers with players.

“From our perspective as a developer, it’s hard to fault GTA Online for caving under something like 10 million players trying to hit servers at the same time,” Osborne said. “We need people to play story, multiplayer and co-op.” He told IGN “We need them to go and create characters so we can understand those systems and what they mean for us. We need lots of people to hit the servers at the same time, see how they use guns and play the early stuff, what the competitive multiplayer looks like with many different levels. Working on Destiny every day doesn’t compare with a million gamers crashing against it.”

He continued telling that they don’t want to “rely on guesswork. We’re going to push as many people against it as possible. We’ll forge it in fire and hopefully that’ll make it a better experience day one for everybody.”

The Destiny beta will be out in early 2014.
