Aion Online Tower of Eternity has been in open beta in Korea since November 11, 2008. NCsoft has been undergoing some restructuring which seems to be delaying the North America Open Beta. Infact, there will be no beta testing but rather “preview events” prior to the release. I feel like this is a mistake. Aion is still planning to launch in Europe and North America in fall of 2009. To say that I am concerned that the NCsoft restructuring will delay the launch is an understatement.

I am concerned that Aion Tower of Eternity is loosing some momentum and by not reaching the North American open beta and launch sooner may fall off the radar of many online massively multiplayer role playing games. There also seems to be a lack of information and the Developer blogs have not been updated since August 27, 2008. This is a big change from Aion being nominated for best upcoming MMORPG.
