As someone with experience in AAA, a project of this scope going 1-2 years over initial deadline is completely understandable and expected, especially if company doesn't have 500 employees. However googling I have seen a lot of unconfirmed sources back in mid '16 claiming that closed beta should be released Q1 '17. Is this still the case or has extended alpha taken over the q1 release date and we should expect nothing in Q1 anymore? EDIT: Nevermind I'm stupid, After some more in depth googling developers said Q1 beta confirmed on FB very recently. Let this post be a lesson for other people whose google fu is not good.
