Beta not close to starting (Implied by Matt during Pax)

hMJemhMJem Marysville, WAPosts: 465Member

"Cheat Code Central’s Jake Valentine got a chance to sit down with Matt Firor, the president of ZeniMax Online, at PAX East this afternoon. Firor is probably most well known for his work on Dark Age of Camelot, but his company is currently heading up the development for Elder Scrolls: Online.

A few months ago, ZeniMax began allowing players to sign up for the title’s upcoming beta, but when asked about the timing, Firor indicated that the beta would not be launched in the near future. "It's a big game," he said. "So we want to take our time."

    In a different video interview,  Matt said that by summer of some point there would be enough people in beta start really start testing the games social features. He mentioned it would start small and build up so if it's going to be large enough by the summer it would have to start soon one would think.. I'll find that video

     

    So not sure how to take that comment.

    The beta isnt starting in a week as predicted/said, is how to take Matt's comment. Probably April or May beta will start and summer it will finish or something.

    So the invites for the "broader" closed beta will not be sent out at the end of March?

    I would'nt even mind if I am not invited, I would just like to see the progress being made.

    That is what it sounds like. More internal testing. I'd suspect Late April-Early May invites will go out or something. Maybe the game isnt in as good as shape as we thought lol.

    Soon doesnt sound like the answer

     

    Matt Frior sounds like the game isnt ready to be played by more than the 100 they have doing internal testing
