The team released a collection of cool stats pulled from the various Beta periods but also released a set of updates coming to all console versions of the game and the big Day One update that fans will need to download, and we've recapped it all for you below, including the fact that 6 million players checked out the Beta. Also noteworthy is the fact that over 175,000 pieces of Legendary gear were found throughout the Beta, which is pretty impressive.

A variety of fixes for crashes seen during the beta have been implemented, which includes certain older systems not being able to launch at all, but also some that occurred rarely during gameplay. We will keep monitoring for other crashes and will release updates as we have them.
Multiple improvements and optimizations made to matchmaking.
We have made fixes for issues surrounding microphone handling and muting other players.
We have addressed some graphical issues, for example when using SSSR while having TAA turned off.
We have solved issues with the Dynamic Screen Resolution feature, especially when it was combined with HBAO+. With those fixes we recommend turning on Dynamic Screen Resolution again (at your desired minimum frame-rate) to ensure you are able to stick to your desired frame-rate no matter how hectic the game gets.
We have brought in some initial improvements to our support for ultra-wide and super-ultrawide screens, with us planning more for launch.
