@Rezo-Caspian Some things are not so well phrased and are best not taken too literally and come to immediate conclusion. We'll be getting some new information on the PC version soon down the line... maybe when we have information on the Open Beta released.
So far what we actually know is the following (from various tweets):
"Later in 2020" was later stated to simply mean... the PC version releases after the Xbox One version with no details on whether that entailed the Closed Beta, Open Beta or Full Release.
The PC version is still planned to release in 'Spring' and may not have a long wait period between the Xbox One version (https://twitter.com/play_pso2/status/1224100875464892418?s=20).
So ultimately we come down to a couple of scenarios on how the PC version is being handled.
The PSO2 Team never once specified what the Xbox One version entails... the game 'launched' on Xbox One in the form of the Closed Beta and we may see the PC version available during Open Beta. The mention of "We'll like to welcome our PC players as well" seems to indicate this could be the case... either that or the next scenario.
Open Betas are often treated as soft launches which makes sense when you think of how much was restricted in the Closed Beta (if Microtransaction is working in Open Beta, that means it will be when SEGA starts making money off of the game). Open Betas also don't last for long and have the game's full launch shortly after... in Japan PSO2's Full Release happened a mere two days after the Beta. In this scenario, PSO2's PC version would launch after the Open Beta during the game's full launch. Since again, Open Betas usually don't last for long, and the Full Game comes immediately after, that last statement about "Finally welcoming PC players" can still hold true.
Or of course, the 'literal scenario' that comes to people's mind when they see the comment... the game will have its Open Beta and Full release on Xbox One and we won't hear from the PC version for several months but still within "Spring" (late March-May).
All these are just speculations... as you can see its kinda hard to come to an immediate conclusion. Best to save actual complaints once we have more details on how the PC version will be handled but as it stands now... not only do we not know anything about the PC version but the Xbox One version isn't playable yet to begin with!
In defence of the Closed Beta being exclusive to Xbox One... while server stress test could have included PC players (test having more loaded servers), the Closed Beta was also most likely meant to test the Xbox One client for bugs that could have been introduced in the porting process (which for the record... some did pop up).
