Fallout 76 Beta Starts for Xbox One in October

A post from Bethesda on Bethesda.net discusses the upcoming beta for Fallout 76, or as they call it, the B.E.T.A. (thanks PCGamesN). This will kick off sometime in October with a random selection of eligible customers who have preordered the RPG sequel and expand from there. They offer this FAQ with more, which does not explain how beta became an acronym, but does say the beta will come to Xbox One first, with other platforms to follow. Here's word:
Popping in to say that it’s been very fun seeing everyone’s discussion on Fallout 76 and what your hopes and thoughts are about the game. I and members of the studio regularly lurk, and it’s been great to read through your questions and feedback. With that in mind, we know you’re anxious to learn more about the game and more specifically, about the B.E.T.A.

Starting in October we’ll be selecting people who have pre-ordered the game from a participating retailer to enter our B.E.T.A. We’ll start small and grow over time as we prepare for launch. Be sure you’ve read our F.A.Q., for details on how to redeem your B.E.T.A. code and other important details.

EDIT: To clarify, everyone who pre-orders at a participating retailer will be included in the B.E.T.A.

Beyond that, we know you have numerous questions about the game. Things are still changing and being iterated on, so we cannot answer everything yet, but we encourage you to submit your questions. During the Fallout 76 panel at QuakeCon we’ll be answering some of your questions. If you’re in Dallas, come join us. If you’re not able to make in person, you can check out all the fun via the live stream airing on Mixer. Send questions our way by posting them here in the forums, on any of the Fallout subreddits, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

Thank you again for all your patience, discussion, feedback, and thoughts as we get closer to the launch of Fallout 76!

The fact that Xbox gets the priority tells us quite a bit about the direction they're wanting to go with the game: less strategy RPG and more online social action. But I guess we already knew that.
It might have more to do with Microsoft running the servers for Microsoft while the PC servers will be run by Bethesda. That said, does Bethesda have a history of how well it runs its multiplayer servers?
