Whils they can release beta whenever they want, some public statement on the incorrect advertisments is required. Simple decent behaviour when misleading news emanates from official post advertisments.

Unless it is to add scorer faces - then no apology needs

Agree, my heart skip a beat when i saw it, and because the add lead to the official instagram, i was sure it was live.......... but i gues it was a delayed april fouls from SI :confused:

There's only one way for SI to make up for this gross negligence...

Miles said that it wont be the usual release time of the day due to the ongoing covid situation. NHS in England needs the bandwidth so I am guessing he means it will be a late evening release, probably about 8 or 9pm UK time.

I really demand an explanation and apology from SI. I saw the advertisement and bought a key and then on steam it says the game is locked? What is this.

That's the spirit bonny lad. Demand an explanation on what? There's no guaranteed release date for the beta.

The FULL game will be released on 24th.

I just got this advert on Facebook too, if it isn't already out I think it's safe to say it is coming at some point today.

Probably some pre-scheduled add-release on the ‘2-week mark’... but still...

We need some GIFs and banter back in here. They never said the beta would be released today. The advert appeared overnight in the UK, clearly it was timed.

 

Noone can demand anything. SI aren't letting you down by it not being available at midnight on the 10th.

 

I think some people need to put their big boy pants on.

Serious mode over.

Noone complain about the delay really

Only the advertisements. 

But by clarifying that I do not intending for being "win in court" camp neither!

Isn’t this the first time the beta hasn’t released prior to the ‘2 weeks’ mark? Trying to think about if it happened before...

It's usually early, this will be the first time that I can remember. I guess we've been lucky in the past. I have confidence today though.

With the adverts, I reckon they were pre-timed on the assumption its never been later than 15 days before in previous years, so it would definitely be out by now. There is probably a big problem that delayed things last minute. It's very bad PR work as some people will have bought the game specifically after seeing those ads, thinking its available immediately. That being said, 95% of us would have already bought and won't care about the ads.

They are puttin ads on instagram and facebook. What a joke how you even defend tht, it's fraudulent advertisement. Without these ads never would have bought.

Yet here you still are longing for the game :lol:

Look, the ads are the ads, until someone says the beta is released, it's not going to be released. Also, its not even 7AM here in England yet.

 

As @Reflection86 says, these will be timed ads, as well as being targeted advertising. I would be surprised if the beta, NOT THE FULL GAME, isn't out today, and by today I mean before midnight tonight. It's people like you that will only moan, and not report bugs when the beta comes out anyway

"Bad PR"?  Is this the only thing you've ever purchased?  Is this your first-ever customer experience?  I think someone might not have a healthy sense of perspective.
