Now that The Division's open beta is finished, Ubisoft has provided official numbers on how many gamers participated in the open beta. The last we heard, was The Division with the SweetFX mod looking gorgeous, and that Ubisoft will be providing the Snowdrop engine to other teams.




Ubisoft noted that The Division open beta broke the record for the biggest beta for new IP on current-generation platforms, with 6.4 million gamers joining in. Players spent 4 hours and 52 minutes in the game on average, with over 1/3 of that time spent taking down other players in the Dark Zone. Over 2.5 million gamers went rogue, while 63,309,800 contaminated items were successfully extracted from the Dark Zone.


Creative Director Magnus Jansen said: "We want to thank the millions of people who joined in on The Division's Open Beta. We hope everybody enjoyed playing, and we think the beta is going to help ensure a great launch for the game. We're looking forward to everyone getting their hands-on the full game when The Division is released on March 8th".
