The much-awaited PlayStation 4 Beta for Activision's next entry to its "Call of Duty" franchise, dubbed "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare," has already kicked off. Of course, since this was a system test, errors and bugs shouldn't come off as much of a surprise. This is exactly what happened on the game's first run last weekend.

According to a report from GameSpot, several players encountered matchmaking issues on the PlayStation 4 beta for "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare." Other fans, however, reported that the game is acting quite strange with incidences of its beta being inactive.

Luckily, though, game publisher Activision has acknowledged the problem and has announced that they are looking into the issue. The latest update, so far, coming from the studio is a new patch for the beta that is aimed to reduce the waiting time for the players to find a match.

Activision, unfortunately, did not provide any specific reasons on the matchmaking issues.

Because of this issue, the game publisher has now decided to extend the PlayStation 4 beta of "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare," as announced by the company on its most recent update post.

"You may have already noticed the FTL Combat Rig in the game, along with game modes Kill Confirmed and Gun Game, and the new map, Precinct. But best of all, IW will be extending this first Beta weekend by an extra day! Instead of concluding on Monday, you'll have a whole extra day to multiplay until things wrap up on Oct. 18 at 10 a.m. PDT (5 a.m. GMT)," Activision wrote.

This isn't the only beta that fans should expect in "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare." As said on previous reports, there is another beta in the coming weekend which will also include the Xbox One platform into the mix.

"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" is now scheduled to come out on the mentioned platforms above as well as on Windows PC on Nov. 4.
