We want to thank the amazing PlayStation Nation for its feedback, for its participation, and for making Black Ops III the largest beta in PS4 history! Black Ops III is without a doubt the most ambitious game that Call of Duty has ever created — Treyarch is pushing the boundaries across each and every mode of play on PS4.”
