The Atlas Twitter account has announced that the Early Access Steam launch of the game has been delayed by six days and will now arrive on December 19th. The delay is being provided to give the dev team "time to review every portion of it thoroughly".

Ahoy! After thinking carefully over the past several days, we've decided to delay the ATLAS launch until December 19th to give the team more time to run through this massive game's extensive content. It's a vast virtual world out there across the ATLAS, and the team's going to use that extra time to review every portion of it thoroughly. We're sorry about the delay, and we know how much everyone is looking forward to establishing their empires! The team here at Grapeshot is so excited to bring this new world to life with you, and we know it's going to be an absolute blast. So please keep your powder dry a little bit longer, and at long last next Wednesday the 19th, we'll be joining you on the most excellent adventure of our lifetimes! See you on the ATLAS soon Pathfinders, Jat, Jeremy, and Jesse
