So confirms Bungie...
I don't imagine this was a huge surprise to anyone, but Bungie has confirmed it anyway: progress from the Destiny beta will not carry over to the final release version. The studio has confirmed (via Digital Spy) that characters and stats earned from the beta tests will not be retained, saying that it would have caused technical problems due to the changes that the game has undergone due to the beta.
Designer Tyson Green 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."
The beta was quite the succes, with over 4.6 million players. The game drops on September 9th for PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS3.
