    I thought this was due to be released in March, surely running a beta in early 2010 would be cutting it very fine to make any changes - unless theres also going to be a delay to the release date?

    I was really looking forward to playing a demo/beta over Christmas, doh!

    This is the game for me - I'm gutted the beta is delayed but I've still got ArmA 2 (new beta patch released today) so I'm all set until then. Really looking forward to this as my community will be getting a dedicated server for this.

    ROLL ON 2010!

    They are timing it for IW to cut half of their "servers" for MW2, leaving MW2 with no multiplayer options. (Yes I know the vast majority of the world has NO multiplay for MW2).
    They will greet all the disappointed fans with open arms to a game with dedicated servers.

    Excuse me, I have to go beta test the new DLC for Shattered Horizon.

    I dont thing Betas are Betas any longer for many companies. I think there now more seen as away to get people to pre ordergames, or gain publicity as a posed to bug hunting and adding extra features.

    Well i suppose its good were getting a new BF game, Still wish they would do a BF3 and make it for PC so we can have our large maps again

    There's still about 30,000 Xfire users playing BF2 on a regular basis, so they've got time yet...
