While the Beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division is considerably less dense than the full release, something that is made clear when you consider the experience we had earlier this month with some of the late game content, the demand for access to the apocalyptic role-playing game before launch has been extremely high. In fact, some players have been unable to access The Division’s Beta, despite receiving codes before its Xbox One launch on January 28 and its PC and PlayStation 4 release one day later.
Today, on the official Ubisoft forums, Ubisoft’s Community Manager released an official statement on access to The Division’s Beta, which is currently set to run until January 31 on all three platforms:
We are continuing to experience very high demand for The Division closed beta and we would like to thank you all for your enthusiasm.
We are now beginning to grant access to all remaining players who have redeemed a guaranteed access pre-order code on the Beta registration website.
We’re also doing our best to grant access to players on the waitlist. Please check back tomorrow for an update on the status of the waitlist.
We thank you again for your excitement and understanding.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is currently set to launch on March 8, and while you’re going to get a small taste of what’s to come on release day through the Beta, the final product is shaping up to be an incredible time-suck. If this statement is any indiciation, more gamers around the world are going to get their opportunity to venture into The Dark Zone for a taste of its unique take on online multiplayer.
