The Division's beta has been extended until Tuesday, February 2nd

To say that the recent closed beta for The Division has been in high demand would be one hell of an understatement. There were so many people who signed up for the beta that Ubisoft decided to increase the player capacity not once, but twice already.

If you are among those that got in yesterday and barely had a time to experience The Division I have some good news as Ubisoft has announced that the beta will be extended until Tuesday, February 2nd, 12pm CET / 6am EST / 3am PST. Here's the announcement message:

"Over the last few days, we’ve seen an incredible amount of excitement for the game, leading to many of you registering on the waitlist for a chance to join our Closed Beta. We’ve been working very hard to let as many players as possible join, while still maintaining a smooth experience for everyone.

Earlier today, we announced that we were now inviting as many players as possible from the waitlist, in addition to those who had guaranteed pre-order access. We’ve started sending invites, with priority given to those who signed up first.

In order to allow everyone who has access to fully enjoy the Beta, we’re happy to announce we’re extending the duration by 24h for all players. As a result servers will remain open until Tuesday, February 2nd, 12pm CET | 6 am EST | 3 am PST.

Thank you all for your amazing support!"

As you can see from the message above they are still sending out invites so if you are among those that signed up for the beta early on I'd recommend you check your email because you might be in for a nice, but rather short lasting surprise. Bear in mind that even if you do get lucky enough to get a key the beta client is about 25GB large so try to account for that in your plans.

Just make sure not to waste your key given that this is the last chance anyone will have to play The Division before its official launch on March 8th.
