Gamers, listen up! Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Beta is coming in a few weeks, and reports suggest the Xbox One gamers can play the version by October 21.
Call of Duty Infinite Warfare release is set for November 4, 2016, but those who pre-order the game can play the Beta version one month earlier. Activision and Infinity Ward confirmed that the dev version of game will be available for download on October 14, 2016. However, the early Beta release will only be for PlayStation 4 gamers, CoD’s site confirmed.
A fine print on the site wrote, “Beta starts October 14, 2016 on PS4 system; Xbox One to follow.”
Xbox One gamers questioned this decision, with many slamming developers for the delay compared to PS4. Is Call of Duty Infinite Warfare PS4 a favored version versus its Microsoft counterpart?
Well, not really.
According to Charlie Intel, Microsoft has confirmed that Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Xbox One Beta version will drop a week after the initial PS release. The pre-order page of the game released the following information:
“Beta starts October 21, 2016 on Xbox One. Availability and launch date(s) subject to change. See www.callofduty.com/beta for more details. Minimum Beta duration is 3 days.”
The information was quickly removed though, but not before fans and news sites took notice of it. Microsoft has not released any statement regarding the error.
The date seems reasonable though as the Beta version would be a preview of the full game dropping on November. The duration would have to end before the official Call of Duty Infinite Warfare release date.
