Update: Bungie clarified the situation in a blog post, mentioning that the alpha is only available to employees. That’s unfortunate, but understandable. They also mentioned that they’re “making great headaway”

For those that are hungry for Destiny news, there might be something coming quite soon, in the form of a “First Look” public alpha. Reddit users SPUTZNiKZ and scz used their PlayStation stalker skills to track down lead UI designer David Candland up to a PSN store page for the alpha, that marks a release date on June 3rd.

The alpha also appears on Candland’s activities as “Destiny Public Alpha” as you can see below.

Bungie itself mentioned in its latest weekly updateIt’s going to be your turn soon. Perhaps even sooner than some of you might think. We’re starting to feel like we’re finally ready for you,” even if “public” alpha probably doesn’t mean that everyone will be allowed in, as much it being open to part of the public for the first time. 

Of course this should be considered a rumor until Bungie makes an official announcement, as this kind of things are always prone to last minute changes. One thing is for sure: the time to finally try the game is drawing near.
