Welcome to Betawatch, Massively's weekly report on the state of MMO betas. In each installment, we'll report everything from the latest open betas, closed betas and even alphas in one convenient place. Plus, we'll make sure to include as much info on each game's current status, including projected release dates (if known) and links to the sign-up forms to get yourself into that beta you've been seeking.

This week we add RIFT and Xsyon to our quickly growing list of Betawatch games with launch dates. Both games will release on March 1st.

We also bid farewell to another member of the Betawatch list, but sadly it's not to launch. After more than five months of a notice on the Captains of DarkTide site promising that the new publishers would have everything up and running very soon, the message has disappeared and the site is blank.

Next week kicks off a weeks-long string of launches. It's going to be an exciting few months, but for the time being follow along after the break for the current Betawatch list.
