Ubisoft have officially announced open beta testing for The Division 2, which is scheduled to run from 1 to 4 March 2019. The publisher didn't offer additional info but they did mention that more will be shared as we're nearing kick off.
After The Division 2 private beta got a somewhat mixed reception from players, Ubisoft have decided to give it another go and offer agents an additional chance to try out their looter shooter before they reach for their wallet.
The second beta test was officially confirmed by Ubisoft today, after Massive's Live Content Manager Yannick Banchereau last night confirmed that the developers are looking to fix certain issues for the upcoming open beta.
A free for all test is scheduled to run from 1 to 4 March 2019, which is just two weeks before the official release date. Unfortunately, the release date was the only bit of info Ubisoft decided to share. There is no mention of potential changes or new features we could see in the open beta but Ubisoft did confirm that they will reveal more info in the upcoming weeks.
While some would love to see more missions and endgame content, others would certainly prefer that Massive and Ubisoft spend the next two weeks polishing the game and addressing reported problems.
During the closed beta, various technical issues have been preventing players from enjoying the game. Players reported memory leaks leading to hard crashes, server issues and various bugs. Some of the problems such as crashes were fixed on the second day of beta but many bugs and exploits were left untouched.
Hopefully, the developers will have enough time to address a majority of these issues as some of them were a real annoyance.
