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.
