Ubisoft revealed an astonishing record for The Division beta. The publisher announced that 6.4 million players participated in the Beta making it the biggest beta ever for a new IP on current generation platforms.
On average, players spent about 4 hours and 52 minutes as an activated sleeper agent, journeying New York City. More than one third of that time was spent in the unique and challenging player-versus-player (PVP) Dark Zone with more than 2.5 million players going rogue.
The Beta gave Ubisoft an opportunity to test its online infrastructure along with changes and updates made to the game. It also served as a chance for millions of players to try the game for the first time and provide their feedback to Ubisoft.
“We want to thank the millions of people who joined in on The Division’s Open Beta,” said, Magnus Jansen, creative director. “We hope everybody enjoyed playing, and we think the beta is going to help ensure a great launch for the game. We’re looking forward to everyone getting their hands on the full game when The Division is released on March 8th.”
