Black Ops 3 is having some beta troubles on Xbox One

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta participants have been unable to renew their codes on the Xbox One.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta has been live for several hours now on Xbox One, but it hasn’t been going so well.

Many players have been finding it impossible to renew their beta codes, preventing them from getting into the beta. This includes codes obtained from paid digital and physical pre-orders.

The Xbox Live status page has made us aware that the issues are under investigation:

“Are you having issues redeeming Beta 5×5 tokens for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3? That’s no good,” reads the post. “But rest assured, our team is assembled and we’re hard at work trying to get this fixed. Thanks for your patience while we work. We’ll update you on our progress when we know more.”

This message went up two hours ago, and it has been a further five hours since the beta itself became available on Xbox One.

For ongoing updates be sure to keep your eye on the Call of Duty and Xbox Support twitter accounts, hopefully this issue will be resolved soon.

The PS4 beta seemed to go by without any major problems, and was even extended past its original expiry time.

Chances are Activision will be extending the beta period for Xbox One after issues have been resolved, so try not to worry too much.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 launches on November 6 for PS4, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
