The exact words from The Historian on January 8th. Actually let me quote here...
"That said we should have some good news very very soon."
Ok then...how good?
From the Spellborn boards

The game guard and server side implementation has been done, We have received the Acclaim version of the test client also.
We are in process of setting up the servers and testing the client for any bugs which need to fixed before the close beta release.
So keep your fingers crossed that we don't come across any critical issues.
Today's date, Jan 22nd. The ACTUAL release date for Closed Beta? November 27th, 2008.
So, I am starting to get confused. Will this game ever launch in 2009? And how is the game doing overseas?
Empty servers is the word being bandied about. I see nothing good coming of this issue.
Not holding my breath any longer, I figure this one goes on the backburner until I see an email for my invite.
Whenever that will be.
