If you took part in The Division 2 private beta (like I did), and was planning on taking part in the upcoming open beta, you’ll have to start everything from scratch, sadly. Yes, it’s now confirmed that The Division 2 private beta progress will not carry over to the open beta!
This was confirmed by The Division 2 Live Content Manager Yannick over on Twitter in response to a tweet made by fan-ran account The Division Forums. For some odd reason, the original tweet has been pulled, but we have a screenshot of it.
I admit, this is a bummer since this means I have to re-do the missions I already tackled before just to gain the abilities, weapons and other stuff I already obtained via the private beta. That said, I do understand why Ubisoft is doing it.
We’ve also emailed Ubisoft in regards to if private beta participants will need to re-download the open beta client or if it’ll just require a patch.
