Betawatch: May 19 - 25, 2012

Eliot Lefebvre

This week in Betawatch, the biggest news is that the game everyone expected to be in beta isn't around. Guild Wars 2 is not running a beta weekend this weekend, meaning that anyone hoping to spend the long weekend in Tyria is going to have to go with the classic version. We also say farewell to Star Supremacy in wake of its launch.

However, for those who love testing unreleased games, it's not all bad news. World of Warplanes has announced its closed beta kicking off at the end of the month, and MechWarrior Online is heading into its closed beta this week. While you won't have a chance to get your paws on The Secret World just yet, we do have a nice new shiny set of impressions from the beta to help tide you over.

Jump on past the break to see the full list of what's still in testing!

Open Beta Stage
MMOs that are in open beta -- sometimes permanently, if you know what I mean:

Closed Beta Stage
MMOs that are deep in closed beta and cloaked in some semblance of secrecy:
Alpha Stage
MMOs more or less in alpha with a beta test on the way:

Betawatch is Massively's weekly report on the latest MMO alphas, betas, and games still meandering toward an official launch. From ArcheAge to Zentia, it's covered here, complete with sign-up links so that you too can perform the unpaid quality-control work otherwise known as game testing.
