The Division has had a rough road to release, yet despite this, it appears that gamers are truly engaged with what Ubisoft is offering with their title. In a post on the official The Division website, Ubisoft revealed that the betas for The Division had a staggering 6 million plus people playing. Which happens to be a record for a new title. You can view the statement from Ubisoft below:
“Today, The Division Beta ended and we’re proud to share that more than 6.4 million of you explored the pandemic-stricken streets of New York City, making it the biggest beta ever for a new game brand on current generation platforms.
On average, players spent around 5 hours as an activated sleeper agent journeying through The Division’s open world. The Dark Zone proved to be particularly popular, with players spending around 2-hours in the PVP zone, with almost 50% of agents turning Rogue in the process. Fun fact: over 63 309 800 contaminated items were successfully extracted out of the Dark Zone.
Thanks so much to the millions who joined The Division’s Beta and started to help take back New York City. We hope you all enjoyed playing the game as much as we have enjoyed making it. See you on March 8 in New York City, Agents!”
