When does a release seem likely?Follow

It would make sense, to me, at least, to aim for the game to be released mid-to-late summer, since most kids (and adults) will be off from school, and have more time to explore the game.

I really hope it's not Q4 2010 :(

Given that they're starting the beta march 11 and want a beta longer than 11's, the earliest time would be august if we're lucky but i'm anticipating october. perhaps the same day ffxi was released.

Think about it this way,
The longer Beta runs, the more serious they're treating our feedback. If it were to come out lickity split, it's a Marketing Beta, and they never intended to take our input seriously. The fact they want a good time frame on this is a good sign, although it's going to require alot of patience.

It's all for the best.

I am assuming a late Q3 2010 or early Q4 2010.

Q4 is most likely.

Q1 2011 if we're really, really, really unlucky (aka if the beta goes horribly and ends up in bug-city to a terrible degree of some kind).

They keep saying they are on track for a 2010 release though so I try to be hopeful about that; however, as any of us should realize, it completely depends on how the Beta goes.

(I'm guessing Halloween week 2010)
I don't believe in good guys versus bad guys anymore… I only see a plethora of states acting in self interest… with varying ethics and moral standards of course, but self-interest nonetheless

MMOs make terrible gifts. It's like buying someone a puppy... It makes your eyes bright the day you open it, but then it takes over your life...

Anyway, I'm going to be the pessimist and say Q1 2011. Approximate release dates were made to be pushed back.
