Dark Souls II Beta Delayed, Will It Affect The Release Date?

We don't know why the network test has been delayed, but it may not be a good sign.

According to a message Namco Bandai left on the Dark Souls Facebook page, the beta test for Dark Souls II has been "indefinitely delayed."

"Due to unforeseen issues, the North and South American PS3 Dark Souls Network Test has been indefinitely delayed. We thoroughly apologize for the inconvenience and will be rescheduling the test so that everyone who downloaded the client can participate for the full duration."

For now, the anticipated challenging sequel is supposed to release in March of 2014 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The beta test has thus far only been confirmed for Sony's machine, but that may change in the future. As for the delay, we're wondering if this will impact the eventual launch date of the game; will it not be ready for March now? And if it isn't, will you be disappointed? You should have other stuff to play...

This is odd. I played in the Beta yesterday. There was a session that went on for 3 hours.

P.S. It still feels like Dark Souls :)

I didn't participate even though I got the invite. The main reason is because I want to go in blind. Dark Souls was complete easy town for me. I am really hoping Dark Souls 2 brings in some new challenges and not the breeze Dark Souls was. Besides upper blighttown.

Dark Souls 2 will be fine. Remember that the game is being developed by From Software but Namco Bandai, as the publisher, is handling the online servers. Namco needs some time to iron out the server issues and they have five mouths to do it.

They need to have servers up and running at all times. I wake up at 6AM five days a week so by 9PM I'm very tired. I'm not staying up until 2AM to play a beta. I have a life.
