Destiny Beta Characters, Items & Stats Will Not Carry Over to Full Game

It’s not surprising, but it’s still a bit of a shame. The characters you created, as well as the items and stats you amassed during the Destiny beta will not carry over to the full game, Bungie has revealed.
"Since the Beta, we’ve continued to tune and adjust the game," said designer Tyson Green on Bungie.net. "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."
Community manager "Deej" added, "What you just experienced is something we’ve been through countless times here at Bungie. We feel your pain, and then some. Making a game requires iteration and progress. When we reinvent the world where the Guardians live, sometimes we have to leave them behind."
"This is the last time we’ll ask you to part with your hero. On September 9th, you can create a Guardian who will keep you company for a good, long time. On a long-enough timeline, you might decide to delete him or her and start over again – but that will be your call to make.”
So there you have it; back to square one. My Hunter will live again and mark my words: I’m gonna get the most badass cape ever.
