Open release for character creation?

i am asking in general discussion but i wish to know this question, as i have some people i could’nt give the closed alpha due to personal issues, but i wanted to ask if there is an expected release date for character creation as open alpha or is that gonna be held of till a beta release can happen?

Yes, we currently plan to open the alpha to everyone at some point before the public Open Beta.

We’re not exactly sure how long before the beta that would be, and of course we don’t have any details to share yet on when the Open Beta would start, but that is our planned approach.

We will share more details as we get closer to both of those things.
