Early Access Delayed?

Looks like they are delaying early access. 

For the last 2 weeks the origin app has stated it starts... right now.

Now, it says I've got to wait another day.

Not good...

EDIt: Turns out it was a mistake with the Origin Launcher.. that they knew about but never said anything.

    Did they announce anything via their social media channels?

    A buddy of mine said he saw the play button briefly at the 5:30 window for launch and it went away.  Now it shows tomorrow at 10am.

    I think the spreadsheet even confused EA

    They kinda did, kinda didn't.

    Bioware says that they always said it was the 15th and assumed that gamers would assume (yeah, you read that right) that they meant the 15th in Bioware's timezone. Meanwhile, Origin had it set to 12:01am 2/15/19, which then adjusted based on your own timezone (leading to some people seeing it as the 14).

    Meanwhile, they didn't correct the Origin listed launch date, which has shown the 14th incorrectly for about 2+ weeks. Or comment on the numerous threads/graphs/images in Reddit regarding the 14th date, while they simultaneously participated in several other threads/conversations on Reddit every day.

    It's said 14th Feb 10:30pm for me since I got premier. I'm in the UK. My mate in New Zealand had the same release time (15th Feb 11:30am, that's the same time as it said for me but in their timezone).

    Either way, mistake or a change, they've messed up. We took holiday days to be able to play properly. Very annoying lol.

    Bioware/EA doesn't know the difference between a trailer and a short film.

    Taking vacation days on their word and recent track record?

    Not everyone is bitter and grinding their teeth looking for something to hate and be cynical about all the time.

    The launcher said it was now, no one said otherwise. It's not the user's fault.

    There was a definite lack of communication between Bioware and EA to get the Origin launcher to display the correct date. For the past two weeks content creators, Redditors, and online journalists have been talking about the early access date of the 14th. They definitely knew it was being discussed and hoped no one would notice the last-minute correction.

    I don't necessarily fault Bioware, but they definitely hold some of the blame for allowing the conversation to continue without correcting it.

    Not really. It's just annoying when you're waiting to play something and then, literally, at the last minute it changes. I'm sure you understand that, being a gamer, even though you're trying to show off and look cool.

    Yes, Im trying to show off and look cool by saying your post is the sky is falling post.  You're 100% right, mmhmm.  You literally took the time to post a complaint that they have a bug in the launcher... wonderful use of your time bud!

    You mean the 30 seconds it took? It was a fine use of my time because I was trying to figure out what had happened and someone replied with the dev's reddit post.

    Keep being cool, though. I'm really impressed by your forum bravado.
