If it’s very flappy but it isn’t a bird and it’s very scaly but it isn’t a lizard, what is it? Why, it’s a dragon, and World of Warcraft: Dragonflight now has a launch date of November 28th. That’s when it’s coming out of very public testing and hoping to pump your world so full of dragons that you never ask for a dragon-themed expansion ever again. Depending on your love of dragons, anyhow.

Other beta news with slightly less of a draconic coating:

Did you realize that there are only 288 days remaining until St. Swithin’s Day? It’s true! You’d better make the most of the time you have until then by reading up on our full list of games in testing just below. Also, let us know in the comments if something changed test phases without us noticing! It’s what St. Swithin would have wanted.

(Note: St. Swithin is someone to be prayed to in the event of drought and none of his history has anything to do with beta tests for online video games. Please do not use Betawatch as a consultation source for any sort of religious operation.)

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, nor will games that are NFT/blockchain scams; we also do not list expansions, with occasional exceptions.

Yes, MMO gamers, you too can perform the unpaid quality-control work otherwise known as game testing! Check out Massively Overpowered’s Betawatch every week for a run-down of MMOs that are still on the road to launch, even if they appear to have set up a permanent residence in a shed called early access.
