Mortal Online 2’s release date has been pushed out to 2022, and early access plans have been abandoned

    So far, it’s been the story of 2021 that so many MMOs have been delayed, but here’s another, according to Steam: Mortal Online 2’s release date has been pushed out to January 25th, 2022, and an early access period will no longer be available.

    “We are so close to adding all of the features and content that we were planning on including for the full release that we don’t see a reason to enter early access anymore,” StarVault wrote on Steam, instead encouraging players to buy a beta package for continued access to the sequel MMO’s ongoing beta, which will “continue to run up until the release in January.”

    “We will simply release Mortal Online 2 on January 25th, with our heavily requested housing system in place along with a heavy dose of polish, bug fixes and extra content, bypassing the early access phase completely. This news will undoubtedly come as a disappointment to many of you who were eagerly anticipating the previously upcoming October release, and we understand these frustrations. We want nothing more than to show the world what Mortal Online 2 has to offer, but most importantly, we care about delivering the most content rich, stable and fun experience we possibly can, and we promise it will be worth the wait.”

    StarVault earlier stated that it observed 40,000 gamers during its stress testing in 2021; our own Stream Team tested the game in March. The early access period, complete with its controversial subscription, was supposed to begin on October 26th, thus the elimination of an early access period neatly sidesteps that. Source: Steam
