Were you assuming that handing over a stack of cash would secure your spot in The Division’s beta this weekend? Well, that much is true — but if you’re on Steam, you might have to wait a little while longer thanks to the fact that everyone else is waiting in line for the same thing.
Ubisoft addressed the problem on Steam earlier this morning. Long story short? Come back tomorrow.
We are seeing an unprecedented level of interest in The Division beta and we want to thank players for their enthusiasm and passion.
As a result, it is unlikely that the players who are currently on the waitlist will gain access to the beta today. Our goal is to grant access to all those players interested in playing The Division and we still hope to do so. Please check back tomorrow for an update on the status of the waitlist.
We thank you again for your excitement and understanding.
Bonus, you get your Friday night back.
Due to the unprecedented demand for access to The Division Closed Beta, we can no longer guarantee access. If you have already pre-ordered The Division and have yet to receive your key, we’re working closely with our partners to ensure that you receive it tomorrow when we send out the next batch of keys.
For those of you that have not pre-ordered but are on the waiting list for The Division Beta, please know that we want to get as many people in the Beta as possible. However, space will be severely limited for the rest of the beta testing phase due to high-demand.
