Calm down, Phantasy Star Online 2 hopefuls! Why would everyone be so antsy about a lack of any firm dates for the game’s closed beta testing? Other than the fact that the game has been running in Japan for ages and was so long delayed that basically everyone interested had long since given up any hope of it coming out… oh. Well, that explains why people might be anxiously awaiting beta news, but the official announcement is still that the testing will be announced… soon.
As mentioned, PSO2 has taken the long road getting here, but Sega has been promised to get a release on Xbox One and PC via crossplay in spring of 2020. The closed beta signups were open as of mid-December last year, with the caveat that the actual closed beta would be taking place via the console only. So we can understand people being a bit anxious for the wait, but just… be patient a little longer. Please. Soon.
Greetings Arks, we know you are excited to find out more about the Closed Beta Test. We are working hard to ensure you have a great experience and we will have more information to share with you when everything is 100% ready (to do otherwise wouldn't be fair to you!) #Soon 😏
