The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta was released for the PS4 on October 14th. The Beta was going to run from October 14th to October 17th. Earlier today on Twitter, Infinity Ward announced that the Beta is being extended for 24 hours, and now it will end on the 18th, rather then the 17th, of October.
Infinity Ward extended the beta so that fans would have more time to play it, but another reason behind the added time is that the developers want to have more time testing the game and gathering feedback from the community.

We expected the beta to be extended, due to the fact that many players were unable to connect to the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare servers when the Beta first went live. Fans tried to connect for hours, but failed to do so due to the heavy traffic the beta was attracting. Thousands of players were trying to log onto the servers at the same time, which caused a lot of problems.
Another problem that the players experienced during the Beta was the matchmaking issue. Players complained about the bad matchmaking problems, where they could not find any matches and had a hard time joining their friends. Infinity Ward released an update yesterday for the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta. The update fixed a lot of the issues that the fans complained about.
The update added Kill Confirmed to the game modes and a new map called Precinct was added to the map rotation. The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta is being played by thousands, and will be live next weekend for both PS4 and Xbox One.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare comes out on November 4th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
