Says on the Comptia's exam page:
Coming soon! Final exam to be released in Q1 2017. The CSA+ beta exam registration is closed. If you took the beta exam, your pass/fail results will be sent directly from Pearson VUE when the exam is released in Q1 2017. Thank you for taking the beta and helping CompTIA further define IT workforce skills in security analytics.

Thanks man. I wonder why they are taking so much time to release the pass/fail info.

I think it's got to do with analyzing all the questions, establish a passing score, check all the wording and remove any ambiguities. It shouldn't be about a pass/fail score but the finished exam as a whole.
If you're such a worrywart, why didn't you take a beta exam, knowing that the result would take so long. Lean back and relax. Life is short.
After the Beta period closes, we begin the question analysis process. This is the time in which the results from the Active Beta period are being analyzed. During this time, we review item specific data, general exam data and participant comments. The data is analyzed to determine which items will appear on the live exam. Depending on the amount of data that must be analyzed and the time needed to construct the live exam, this period can take from 6 to 10 weeks. Once the final live exam is made available to the public, we then score all the beta results against the official passing score.
The Beta Scoring period is the time in which the results from the Active Beta period are scored against the live exam. This process takes 1 to 2 weeks; after which you will receive your score report. Score reports will be sent out at, or very close to, the date of the live exam release.
Beta exam scoring
When you complete a beta exam, you do not receive a score immediately because the scoring model for the exam is not yet finalized.
You usually receive your exam score by the time the final version of the exam becomes available—this can be up to 16 weeks after you take the exam. This time frame reflects the comprehensive process used to evaluate the beta exam results.
Note Participation in beta exams is voluntary, and Microsoft makes no promises or guarantees regarding the beta exam process, availability of your scores, or the timing of your results.
After the beta period closes, we statistically analyze the data to evaluate the performance of each question. We also read and evaluate all comments provided during the beta exam.
Each written exam version is offered first in beta form at a discounted cost of US$50. Beta exams are scheduled just like other written exams and are available at all worldwide testing locations. Results, however, are typically not available until 8 to 12 weeks after the close of the beta. A candidate may attempt the beta exam only once during the beta period.
