He promised an open beta this "autumn". Well, now we have to revise that statement by making it slightly more accurate. November.

The creative director for Home, Ron Festejo, said that the closed beta is expanding in July and an open beta is set for November (http://www.eurogamer.net/tv_video.php?playlist_id=8863). Open beta is simply a release date for an unfinished, possibly still buggy product. So, Home is due out this November with some kinks for us to find and them to work out -- they've had plenty of time, so we feel it'll be pretty much done by that time, though.
