Activity - Make your educated guess!

Good morning, Arks! It is now Week 2 (after closed beta test) and time to start a collection of educated guesses geared towards when you think the Open Beta will begin! Look below for the intended format.

  • Open Beta start date: (example: February 17th 2020)

  • Open Beta end date:

  • Official release date:

  • Bonus question: When will information officially be released?

We could up the ante and perhaps reward the Ark closest to the actual dates.

I will go first:

  • Open Beta start: March 20th 2020

  • Open Beta end: March 29th 2020

  • Official release: April 1st 2020 (Following an April Fool's joke)

  • Bonus question: March 3rd

Open Beta start date: 3/6

Open Beta end date: 3/29

Official release date: 4/3

Bonus question: 2/21

  • Open Beta Start Date: 6/5

  • Open Beta End Date: 6/19

  • Official Release Date: 6/19

  • Bonus Question: 5/22

Sorry for the pessimism. Generally corporate timelines are never met early. This project is a little different but they still have a lot of voice overs to do. The translated story only seemingly went to episode 3 in the beta. For the sake of verification of bug fixes in builds I would assume the JP and NA version would run on the same release, only the NA version would have the English patch applied. This method of NA and JP running on the same release version would require much less manpower, rather than supporting two separate releases.

  • Open Beta start date: February 21st or 22nd, 2020
  • Open Beta end date: March 22nd, 2020
  • Official release date: March 22nd, 2020
  • Bonus question: February 21st, 2020

I'm expecting them to release information about the open beta the day of open beta, no matter if I get the dates wrong or not. I'm not expecting them to fix anything in the PC version that was reported on the Xbox version.

@JuLeS-SeLLaDoR I can appreciate the pessimism. I hope you're wrong, though!

Here are my predictions.

  • OBT Start : Late February or very early March

  • OBT End : About 2 to 3 weeks after the OBT starts

  • Official Release Date : A few hours or a day after the Open Beta ends

  • OBT announcement date : I expect it to be very soon since February is almost over. Maybe this or next week we could get it.

  • Open Beta start date: 3/14 (White Day and Pi Day)

  • Open Beta end date: 3/21

  • Official release date: 4/3

  • Bonus question: When will information officially be released? 2/26

Odds are it'll launch on a Tuesday.

I hold you personally responsible if we don't get this game until the end of June/start of July because of your Open Beta timeline guess.

Open Beta start date: Feb 28

Open Beta end date: March 8

Official release date: March 24

Bonus question: When will information officially be released? Feb 18

Open Beta start date: March 20

Open Beta end date: March 29

Official release date: May 19

Bonus question: When will information officially be released? March 6

Mid to late February we here news of Cross Play OBT.

Early March we get Cross Play OBT to test cross play functionality.

OBT ends after a week of testing.

We hear news on full release date mid to late March.

April full release or we could see another OBT open and stay open until full release.

Open Beta Start: Praying end or February, very early March.

Open Beta End: Never had a game kick people off long after open beta, So guessing a day or two before release. Or they will just continue "Open Beta" and re-lable it release with a patch.

Official Release Date: Sometime in April, I know there were some text issues, but those are easy fixes. The game ran extremely smooth the last 2 days of CBT. So I think it's pretty ready.

When will information officially be released? I have faith in the team and the one or ones in charge of the twitter, so I think we will hear some kinda news 2/18 or sometime through the week of 2/18 - 2/21 ♥

I also invite the admin team to make their guesses.

I've been beat down by the corporate world long enough to know that a project will go into production when the coffers to fund development run dry. If Microsoft is funding the development of PSO2 NA, then the game simply won't be released until that money is spent. 😞 Otherwise that money is lost revenue for SEGA.

Please do know I want PSO2 NA to launch tomorrow!
