Ubisoft have announced that the open beta for The Division pulled in a record breaking 6.4 million players, making it the largest beta ever for a brand new IP.
On average, players spent 4 hours and 52 minutes in the beta, with more than one third of that time spent battling other agents in the Dark Zone, and over 2.5 million of you went rogue.
“We want to thank the millions of people who joined in on The Division’s Open Beta. 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.” – Magnus Jansen, creative director
The open beta was an opportunity for Ubisoft and Massive to test the online infrastructure, as well as any changes made from the closed beta. It also served as an opportunity for players to try The Division before release, and allow them to provide valuable feedback before launch.
The Division is set to release on March 8, 2016, on Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4.
