Even slikken voor de Settlers fans:

Er komt geen public beta uit .

It has been decided that to accomplish the timely release of The Settlers IV before Christmas this year, we will not be conducting a public beta test. We realize this will come as a disappointment to those of you who were looking forward to the test, and we are genuinely sorry for that, but we also believe the game and its fans will be best served through extensive internal testing and a subsequent pre-Christmas, bug-free release. Ik ben persoonlijk niet zo'n fan van Settlers, maar ik vind het wel triest dat er alweer iets wordt uitgesteld .
