Destiny’s budget “nowhere near $500 million”, Alpha voice acting just provisional
In an update on Bungie’s official website, the developer has clearly stated that the budget is “nowhere near” the $500 million reported. Developer Urk said that “the budget for Destiny, including associated marketing costs and pizza Wednesdays, is nowhere near $500 million”. He doesn’t seem to know the exact amount, but he is sure enough it’s not even near that enormous sum.
On top of that, he also mentioned that the voice acting from the Alpha state of the game is not final… thank God. “In fact, the Ghost dialog has already been updated for beta. It will be updated again for launch on September 9th, as well. Funny thing about alpha builds…they’re not done.” he said.
The Destiny Beta will be starting late july for all current-gen and last-gen consoles.
