ddo-eberronTurbine announced in early July that they will be relaunching Dungeons and Dragons Online on August 6 with Dungeons and Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited, but now we have the sad news that the scheduled relaunch has been delayed till September. Well… at least it’s just one month and not more. Read below to find out why D&D Online has been delayed.

“We’ve been holding a series of live events as part of the beta program and have seen an unprecedented level of participation from players. While we are very pleased with the performance of the game and are excited about the response from the players, we are committed to delivering a high-quality experience. We feel that more time is needed to deliver on this commitment. As a result, we are delaying our launch to ensure that we can support the massive increase in players that we are expecting and deliver them a free-to-play experience like none other,” said game’s executive producer Fernando Paiz, according to 1UP.

Apparently, the free to play version of Dungeons and Dragons Online will go live on September 9, while the players who are paying the subscription fees will be able to experience Eberron Unlimited starting September 1 this year. So, after all, just one month – not much, if we are to consider the time people have waited for the game to get reborn and free…

Now let’s just hope that the delay was indeed made in order to improve the game and Dungeons and Dragons Online will deliver a high quality experience… otherwise it would be a real tragedy for the fans.
