SoH Newsletter talking about Alpha, Beta and future plans

Heroic Games released a really interesting newsletter on 15th June 2018 talking about their views on alpha and beta phases of game design. The upshot is that they are planning to skip the open alpha and closed beta phases and go straight to open beta, and have more than one open beta phase! The idea being that the more people who play the game early on, the better the feedback will be in order to make improvements, etc.

They also still plan to hold their login test in 2018.

You can read the newsletter on the Ship of Heroes site - https://www.shipofheroes.com/what-makes-an-alpha/
