Tabula Rasa Delay

The Tabula Rasa Website has word from Starr Long that this upcoming MMORPG from Richard Garriott's Destination Games is going to miss its target launch date of October 19 (thanks PropheT), in spite of it having been declared gold almost a month ago (story). The new target launch date is November 2, with the head start for preorder customers to begin on October 30:

Many of you have heard my mantra for game development: "Stable, Fast, Fun. In that order." We need a little more time to make that happen.

To this end we are moving our Pre-Order headstart date to 10/30/07 and our commercial service start date to 11/2/07. This short but critical amount of time will give us time to address several issues including stability and balance as well as allowing our players to test the continent of Ligo (L38+) and our major changes to crafting for a few weeks rather than a few days. Our entire development staff feels this extra time is needed as does our beta community. We feel confident that this extra time will make a difference on launch day.

That said we are excited about launching the game and moving into a "live" environment where the entire future of the AFS is ahead of us. Expect more posts from Richard Garriott, Paul Sage, and other dev staff over the next few days as they discuss plans for elder content and content updates both long and short term. One of us will also be posting to the website every Friday in order to directly address your feedback, which you can submit via the Feedback Form found here on the website.

See you in game as we wrap up this final leg of testing and get ready for the end-of-beta blow out!

Especially compared to other, still under NDA, near-future action rpg/mmogs coming out at virtually the same time.

Blink twice if this is Huxley. I can't think of any other near-future MMOs coming out. Surely not Hellgate, since that doesn't look too MMOish. Hmm.. lists the folling near-future games coming soon:

Ruin Online
Age of Armor

So you're saying that one of these above is better compared to TR. I know now what I must do.. I must get in to the beta of all three of these games (I think I'm in line for Huxley though).
