Activision and Treyarch have announced that the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta on PS4 was the biggest beta ever, with the most players online, most gameplay sessions, and most hours of gameplay played out of any beta that has ever been on the PS4.

“This is about making sure we deliver to our fans the best possible game at launch,” said Rob Kostich, senior vice president and general manager of Call of Duty®, Activision Publishing. “Becoming the biggest beta on PS4 speaks to the excitement felt by gamers and the quality of work by Treyarch. And remember, this beta is just a fraction of the overall multiplayer experience and a portion of what’s coming on November 6 when the full game – spanning campaign, multiplayer and Zombies hits worldwide.”

“We’ve been looking forward to getting the game into the hands of the people that matter most – the fans,” said Mark Lamia, studio head of Treyarch. “We can’t thank them all enough for participating and providing us with invaluable feedback and data that Treyarch is already hard at work incorporating into the game for launch. Our goal is to deliver the best Day One experience possible and this beta – along with the input from our passionate community of fans – has helped position us to do just that.”

“Played by millions of PlayStation fans around the world, the response to the beta was massive and shows the strength when bringing together the best-selling console franchise with the best-selling game console,” said Adam Boyes, VP of Publisher and Developer Relations, Sony Computer Entertainment America. “Signaling an impressive start of a new era for PlayStation and this famed franchise, there was no better way to welcome Call of Duty to its new home on PlayStation 4.”

    • just drank bleach

      almost lost my sweg

      • ScOott

        Lol, you just drank bleach, you have permanent sweg!

  • Bet they said that about Destiny as well..

    • Keshav Bhat

      Yes! They did say that about Destiny’s beta, because Destiny’s beta was the biggest one when it happened, but now the BO3 beta has beaten it out.

      • ScOott

        Thank god, Destiny doesn’t deserve that crown..

        • Kyle Soule

          I will have to agree with you I used to like destiny but now it just seems like a huge cash cow for activision.

  • ScOott

    Seriously I’m glad the beta has done as good as it has, it’s about time cod got back on track, and Bo3 is defo a step in the right direction..

    • just drank bleach

      well, now that they nerfed rejack, I see it kinda pointless to use that specialist imo.

      • Steven

        That further cements the point OP made.

  • ItzSikh

    i bet treyarch are just going to support ps4 for most of the game and just thrash the X1 cuz im really not liking the freeze on the beta today

    • Yankeephil

      The beta is freezing because of your profile, create a new live profile or delete a bunch of friends and it’ll stop freezing

      • ItzSikh

        how many gayboys should i delete to stop freezing

        • Will WilFredo Mendoza

          Sad you call your friends gayboys.

          • ItzSikh

            i wonder if you understand a joke, they name call me too so its fine

          • Wait, black ops 3 freezes on the Xbox 1 for having to many friends?

        • Yankeephil

          They say the freezing issue happens with people who have 100+ friends

          • ItzSikh

            well i had 60 friends and still froze

          • Yankeephil

            Just create a new Live account, there’s reports that it fixes it. If your XB1 is setup as your home XB then all accounts on that xb will have free Gold.

          • ItzSikh

            don’t want to that starting at level 1 again will be a bore

          • ItzSikh

            i’ll just deal with it

  • LovekillerX

    Now let’s see if Black Ops 3 will be a success. People are forgiving problems now that it is “just a beta” but people won’t give second forgive if game launches horribly.

    • CoDforever

      Bo2 and Bo1 launched horribly yet were still very successful

  • lunator100hd .

    I hope the final game is going to be as smooth and balanced as the beta( with less lag of caurse) if this comes true the game will def sell big and i hope will surpass destiny or shitty games like warcraft on twich, i want cod to become again the game it was back in mw2 days.

  • Graveyard55

    I hope they just nerfed that shit only for Xbox one they want bitch about it but we as ps4 community we know how to stop him and everybody have a fun time will the beta on ps4

    • spartanelite

    • ItzSikh

      r u stupid its going to be like that on lauch as well so cry to sleep when it launches with the nerf on ps4

  • Gooby

    BO3 is definitely going to revive COD!

  • YoungMurf
