Its Xbox One and PC western release was announced at E3 2019.
The Closed Beta is available in the US and Canada only. However, while no date has been given showing when the test will start, it’ll only be open to Xbox One.

Players just head to the store and download the Insider Hub app and from there you can go to “Insider Content” and PSO2 should be listed. When the test goes live, the Xbox Wire post states you should receive an Xbox Message letting you know.
Further details on the game and beta are on the official website where it also confirms that all progress from this test will carry over. Also, everyone who takes part in it will also earn some as-yet-unnamed “exclusive rewards.”
