OP  7/18/13 12:39:30 AM#1

I feel they will launch this game on March 16th, 2014, to co-incide with the 15 year anniversary of the original EQ. I believe they will start closed beta around the end of August until end of January, and then Open Beta from end of January to March 16th. 

 

This is just my speculation, and I hope that when they do a closed beta, they do a big one and give many people the chance to participate and stress the servers.

SOE live, or close to it, will be the start of open beta.  They've already been doing closed beta with in house testers and are going to get their product out of the gate as fast as possible to get a lead on the competition.

August 2nd - August 30th will start open beta.

Release will happen sometime in September - November, to be ready for the holidays.

That...would be awesome news, however, I have learnt to not get my hopes up over MMOS, so when it happens, THEN I will become hyped and excited (moreso than now!) ;)

march is one of the slowest times for game purchases for consoles, not sure about PC.

 

If anything they will plan for a release right before Dec of this year, or if they can't meet it, right before Summer 2014.  Both are high purchase times for the gaming community and would maximize their profits for box sales (if they go that route)

I agree, though I don't think they have to rush their product.  With Blizzard's pushback on WoW2 (whatever it is), I predict next spring/summer post public beta.  I just hope they don't leave it in beta...  i'm a bit discouraged by these AAA title publishers leaving titles in open beta for months at a time.  I'm sure there are reasons behind it that i'll never know or care.  IMO Test it, package it, ship it - perfect is an illusion.

If they are really pushing for a 2013 release like Smedley makes it sound, then I pick mid-late November.

If it doesn't happen then, I pick April as the next earliest available date.

The release date certainly isn't going to be too far out from SOE Live or the whole concept of hiding the game in a black box so their competitors don't steal their ideas will be pointless.

Well I already predicted a late spring launch date a couple of weeks back when I said November 11. 

 

P.S. I really wish people would stop using seasons as a reference point in time lines, once you cross the equator they are all the other way round and we have had this wonderful innovation called ""months"" for some time now.

It's possible that Blizz realized sandbox was the trend and are re-doing Titan for the same reason SOE re-did EQN, and are waiting for SOE to show their hand, and SOE know this which is why they are holding back till Aug, they may have intended a reveal at E3 (which is why they had a press demo ready).

 

This may mean that whatever innovative features EQN has can be quickly copied over onto another mmo, such as Rift or GW2, depending on how fundamentally sandboxy and engine taxing they are. I can see Trion being able to copy some EQN features pretty fast, and Wildstar too, as they are not restricted by IP.

 

Or SOE are simply worried about mmos being made from scratch with their ideas, in which case they are comfortable with a year or 2 of further development in the open before launch.

They've been doing alpha in house. Closed beta will probably be September with open beta/release right around christmas

Well, Call of Duty drops in November which is gonna take a lot of people away from buying a new game. The way MMOs change and take retarded amounts of time to develop, I'll say summer of 2014.  It will be disappointing if it isn't released this year, but when it comes to these types of games....are we rarely NOT disappointed by many things?

Don't try. Trying is the first step to failing.

7/18/13 11:29:09 AM#13

In an interview last October it was hinted that the game would be playable at SOE on August 2nd.  I would think that the OP's estimates are close. I would guess that beta would begin in August and run till much closer to the end of the year.  I would not be surprised to see the beta run into next year, if only because SOE will offer the option to buy into the beta, just like every other recent Free to Play MMO has done, including Planetside 2. 

It'll be totally free to play eventually, but it's totally free to play right now for just $40.

Planetside 2 beta lasted from the beginning of August to mid-November.

That's true, but In the interview October when they made the claim that players would have a playable version of the game by the end of the year "and not just a beta".

I'm wondering if they're going to come out with some other kind of version of the game that they can give to us that doesn't count as either the beta or the full game.  That'd be odd.

Not that odd.  They did that with Spore, for example.  I'd love to be able to create my character beforehand and just jump into the game when the servers go live.

If the rumors are true, that EQNext has been in production for over 4 years now, I could see a 2013 Release.

Would be great.

Just because I'm a gamer doesn't mean I drive a Honda.

This would be a good reason to not suspect a November release... if the game wasn't going to be F2P.

If you know anything about game development, you'd know there is no set Alpha/beta standard.  Beta just means when they feel there is few enough remaining known bugs for their beta standards.  One company may call a game in beta when another company would call that same game Alpha.  Google releases final products and has them out for years and still calls them beta version xx.x.xxx or whatever.

Bottom line, SOE has been doing internal testing, and you can rest assured that they've already been well into beta by now.  SOE Live will mark a mid or end point of close beta, with an open beta to follow and release this year.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

 Mine too, but November 2014 because I am a pessimistic little f**k and it makes me to be more patient.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
