You heard it right. Tom Clancy's The Division is finally getting some sunlight as Ubisoft announces that Tom Clancy's The Division will be rolling out to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC its long overdue beta before January ends. The Twitter announcement of the official The Division Twitter account, @TheDivisionGame, read the following.
"Your mission is about to start. The Division Closed Beta starts January 28th! Register on http://thedivisiongame.com/beta"The title of this article, however, does not mean a countdown to the days before Tom Clancy's The Division. It is actually the number of days platform players will be able to get their hands on Tom Clancy's The Division. Tom Clancy fans will have three exciting, but measly beta days to try this much-awaited title--three if you're on the Xbox One, but even shorter if you're on the PlayStation 4 and PC.
Tom Clancy's The Division beta will be coming as a timed exclusive to Xbox One players on January 28 and will come a day later, on January 29, on the PlayStation 4 and PC. Tom Clancy's The Division beta will be ending on January 31 so if you're really interested in getting that extra gameplay time, better start firing up your Xbox One now.

It's first appearance in the E3 2013 was immensely celebrated but after appearing a second time at E3 2014 and a third time during the Microsoft keynote speech at E3 2015, Tom Clancy fans were getting restless. To appease the fans, Ubisoft found that they should start breaking the bones to finish Tom Clancy's The Division. By E3 2015, Tom Clancy fans were already pessimistic about the release of Tom Clancy's The Division. But hooray for Ubisoft when they announced during the E3 in 2015 that Tom Clancy's The Division was releasing its first beta exclusively on Xbox One.

However, Ubisoft has yet again fallen short of their promise and the December beta of Tom Clancy's The Division did not come into fruition. But we are letting bygones be bygones as Ubisoft finally confirmed that Tom Clancy's The Division beta will now roll out before January ends. While its timed exclusivity for Xbox One was not its promised exclusivity in 2015, more Tom Clancy fans are happy that more platforms will have access to the much-awaited Tom Clancy title.

However, if you were one of those people who were disappointed to find another The Division trailer during the Microsoft keynote speech after years of Ubisoft constantly dangling the title in front of you (ergo, you didn't pre-order), then you'll have to resort to the alternative and brawl your way into Tom Clancy's The Division beta by registering at the Tom Clancy's The Divisionbeta page and be put into the waiting list.
