It seems that the “unforeseen circumstances” that Planetside 2 developers warned about earlier have occurred. Originally planned to launch today (Monday, July 30) or tomorrow (Tuesday, July 31) the Planetside 2 Beta has been slightly delayed, but for good reasons.
According to John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment, the team had to delay the beta launch for further polishing and testing before they let in a mass number of players. This is to ensure that everything is “awesome”.
In his words, the Beta was “planned for today or tomorrow but we have some stuff we need to make sure is awesome.”
The new beta date is scheduled to start either this Friday, August 3, or the following Monday.
