64bit Beta & Release Plan


The Development and Quality Assurance teams here at CRS are rapidly closing in on deploying 64-Bit Open Beta. Today we're going outline our general plan and help set expectations for release, but the short version is - we're aiming for the end of next week to start Open Beta. As a reminder, our first goal here is to make the WWII Online application(s) (PC and Mac) 64-bit compatible. This means that all Mac users who have upgraded to the latest OS can return and play WWIIOL, and it will future proof all PC users for the likely requirement of Windows have 64-bit clients. To our Mac users, thanks for your patience ~ we know this took longer than expected.This release will mark one of our most important promised deliveries from one of our funding campaigns. Please continue reading for more details about the Beta and release plans.
