The Division Beta Delayed to 2016, Alpha Announced

Ubisoft today announced that they have decided to delay the beta program for their upcoming Tom Clancy title, The Division.

The beta, which was scheduled for this December, will not take place. Those who have pre-ordered the game will now get access to the closed beta sometime in early 2016. The full game releases on March 8, so the beta will have to release either in January or February.

Although the beta will be delayed, Ubisoft will be hosting a closed alpha for the Xbox One players who pre-ordered the game. The alpha will begin on December 9 at 4 am EST and will end on December 12 at 3 am EST. Ubisoft said that the alpha will contain more than just the Dark Zone PvP mode that has been playable before and that the beta will have even more.
