Bungie has released a wealth of stats from the Destiny Alpha, revealing how many kills were carried out along with player match numbers.
Originally posted on the Bungie blog to coincide with the end of the extended Alpha, the figures reveal that 6,461,871 player games took place, which suggests the developer should expect a similarly robust degree of interest for the upcoming beta in July.
Other stats revealed include:

The developer promised it had gleaned a great deal of insight into what needs refining following the Alpha, and would now be working out how to improve any rough edges before next month's beta. Access to the betais offered to those who pre-order the title.
Bungie is going big with Destiny, the first game from the studio since it parted ways with Microsoft and the Halo franchise. And Activision believes in the MMO first-person shooter, putting $500 million into the game’s development and promotion. We recently talked to the developer about how it came up with the idea, initially wanting to stay as far away from anything Halo-like as possible.
We've reached out to Activision to see if we can get confirmation on the above and will update the story when we hear back. For much more onDestiny, be sure to read our latest in-depth preview from E3 2014.
