Please note that we will be mostly waiting for the full NDA drop before we post updated information on Alpha-1, but we will continue to post information that has specific citeable sources from Intrepid.

Programma di rilascio

Some recent developments have caused me to reevaluate our upcoming test schedules and make some necessary adjustments. I will be moving the NDA release and the June 1st Alpha One start date to July. I know this is not ideal, and you have no idea how much it pains me to disappoint our community, but it is my responsibility to make these difficult decisions in order to ensure the test is successful. Testing for the 14th of May will continue for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with an updated schedule being sent to testers today.[29]Steven Sharif

The Ceneri della creazione release schedule is subject to change.[30]

Over the last month, several new developments both internally and externally have led me to err on the side of caution and postpone the NDA release and Alpha One dates to July. If it had only been any one of these issues, we would have powered through it.[29]Steven Sharif
