That is the exact reason I dont do online physical pre-orders. To me its a bad idea in the unlucky case something happens with shipping. I generally pre-order where I can pick up in store, though even that can go wrong. (pre-ordered skyrim from local gamestop, they werent sent the right number of copies, so I went to a target, heh.)

Preordered from Amazon, who has never let me down with Release Day delivery. If a CE becomes available, I'll change my order.

Thanks OP!

Also: The official Funcom pre-order isn't out yet which also worries me.

We will make sure to publish the official pre-order offers and information as soon as they get available.

I would speculate:

5.-9. March: PreOrder including CE at GDC
6.-8. April: OpenBeta at PAX East
24. April +/- some days: release

This would give them the best press coverage.

Going with the conspiracy theme, I have a bad feeling that EA is the sole figure behind that posting. Why bad, you ask? Well, to me it means that EA is prepping to release the game right within the release window. If Funcom gave Amazon the info, they certainly wouldn't have forgotten to include their own name. If EA is indeed behind it, then I'm getting reverberations along the lines of SWTOR. EA held Bioware to that hard and fast date in December that was set over the summer. In my opinion, Bioware knew that the game wasn't polished (they had to. I can't believe otherwise with their general track record), yet EA was having none of it and forced an on-time release of a game for their cash infusion. I've NEVER seen an MMO with a quality experience come out on the date initially stated.

Anyway, the page being up now with only credit being given to EA shows me that they are taking the reins for release, rather than it being a collaborative effort. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that FC has the balls to stand up to them (and it's written into their contract to do so) to avoid prematurely releasing the game. This is what I've been waiting for since The Matrix Online closed down, and if EA screws this up like SWTOR, they can be damn sure that I will only be buying used in the future.

What do you mean "probably?"

Funcom hasn't given any notice about preorder offers, so clearly this is done without their involvement.

Yes! I hope they make this possible!

is there any official statement by Funcom about Origin yet? Will Origin be required to play the game? Or can i play it without installing Origin? Origin would be a no-go for me. Even buying a EA published game is hard stuff, rly hard stuff.... but being forced to install Origin ontop would make me run away asap. lol
