In a Twitter announcement, the official Blue Protocol account revealed that the closed beta test scheduled for March 2020 has been pushed back. This decision was made with the staff in mind. In order ensure the safety of the development team amid concerns regarding Coronavirus, the closed beta test has been delayed to sometime in mid-April 2020.
However, this date may be changed again depending on the situation. The team will make another announcement sometime later this month regarding the closed beta test.

Sign-ups for the closed beta test opened on February 12, 2020. Bandai Namco held a closed alpha test last year which started with 5,000 applications but eventually extended to 10,000 users. In a video letter from the developers, they announced that a total of 50,000 applicants would be accepted for the closed beta test.
