If you’re having trouble redeeming your Call of Duty: Black Ops III beta code, you are not alone. It seems that a number of users have found their codes to be dead on arrival.

The responsibility for the fix seems to rest with Microsoft, as Xbox Support and Activision have both shared updates via Twitter to that effect.

We’ll keep an eye on things and let you know when the duo announce how they’ll be addressing this issue. Stay tuned.

Our Take
With enough dead codes to warrant addressing this, it wouldn’t surprise me if the Xbox beta was opened up quickly. That would alleviate the need for codes entirely.
