No, Your Destiny Beta Characters Won't Transfer To The Final Game

Grind and grind again...
Bungie have confirmed that characters created during the recent Destiny Beta will not transfer over to the final game.
Those who who enjoyed the beta and spent hours farming mobs of Fallen, saving up for that new weapon or Jumpship, will have to do it all over again come the game's launch later this year. Before you get too angry however, Bungie designer Tyson Green offered an explanation as to why this is the case in the Bungie weekly update blog:
"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."
Destiny will release on Xbox One and Xbox 360, and PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on September 9th from which point, your characters will be safe and saved.
