Betawatch: Dual Universe hits the Kickstarter circuit (September 9, 2016)

This week, Dual Universe started its Kickstarter, and – oh, you’ve already got your checkbook out. Great, it’s half a million for this one. Oh, and it’s going to have a subscription business model, just if that affects your betting odds.

Meanwhile, most of this week’s beta news centered around stuff leaving beta testing. No, really! Just keep reading.

Do we even have a list left below? Of course we do, don’t be silly. Let us know if something on that list managed to slip into a launch or launch-ish state down below in the comments, though. We can’t promise we’ll agree with you, but we can promise that we’ll think of you as very attractive for at least four minutes.

As always, we consider an MMO to be in open testing if it features free, public signups and will server wipe prior to launch. An MMO is marked in closed testing if it’s running a private test phase that cannot freely be accessed by the general public; it’s usually under NDA as well. Early access and crowdfunded MMOs whose tests we deem legitimate will be included. So-called “open beta” soft-launch MMOs with cash shops, no sign of launch in the west, or limited interest for our readers will not be listed; we also do not list expansions, with occasional exceptions.
