Game Testing vs. Beta Testing

Posted by Michael Bitton on Sep 30, 2009  | Comments

Game Testing vs. Beta Testing - Star Wars: The Old Republic - MMORPG.com

Did we (meaning our site and all the many other outlets) make a mistake in our reporting that "Beta" sign ups had begun yesterday for Star Wars: The Old Republic?

I'm not so sure; but it appears BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic Community Manager, Sean "Ashen Temper" Dahlberg, is making a distinction between Game Testing and Beta Testing in a post on the game's official forums, pointing out that BioWare has not announced anything on "beta testing" yet:

I would like to point out that we are doing Game Testing sign-ups; we have not done any announcements about "beta" testing. As specified in the original article, the Game testing for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be rolled out in several phases over an extended period of time. These test phases will begin with smaller, tightly focused test groups, and later tests will expand.

It looks like there is a distinction between beta and game testing. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
