The Division Beta Gets Delayed Into 2016, Just Like The Full Game
The Division, Ubisoft’s stab at a MMO, was initially set to release in 2014 but the team at Massive deemed this deadline as ludicrous. Rightly so. Then it was supposed to release in 2015 and now has finally settled into a (hopefully) final resting place of March 2016.
The Division’s beta seems to have followed suit.
- You’ll Be Able To Play (Expensive) PS2 Games On Your PS4 Now | 2 months ago
- Jessica Jones Disempowers Its Male Characters And The Effect Is Refreshing | 2 months ago
- Hell Is 30 000 Deathclaws Tearing Through Boston And It’s Glorious | 2 months ago
- Sony Santa Monica Is Teasing Something Truly Strange | 2 months ago
Initially intended for December 2015, the beta has now been pushed to 2016 though no specific date has been given.
However, there will be a closed alpha on Xbox One with invites being sent out to select users. Ubisoft is also strictly controlling the release of footage so don’t expect any streams.
The Division’s alpha is set to weigh in at 23.2GB and will be a version of the game “that includes more than the Dark Zone PvP-enabled areas”
That’s hefty. Really hefty for an alpha test. It does bring into question what the final version of the game is going to weigh in at. The Division’s alpha kicks off next week so expect to see some previews and impressions floating about.
