When people think you're teasing release, but it just looked like a cute calendar emoji in the preview. 😬
A small update as we're continuing to review feedback from the Open Session!
📅 Plan is still to launch later this summer.
🎮 Launch will be on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. We're working on last-gen platforms for later.
👍 We'll provide more updates as they're available.
We appreciate the wishes to extend Open Sessions, but we will not be extending it to allow our team to rest and process the Open Session properly.
Love all the passion for XDefiant and see you in matches until 11 PM PT! 💛

If you can’t see your progression, level 13 is around the same as 125K XP, so can be a helpful way to know how far you are into the challenge!
We’ve seen reports of DedSec challenge not visually showing progression for those that played in Closed Beta.
The experience is still being tracked on our end and we will be granting anyone who reaches the 125K XP, so don’t worry you’ll be throwing those spider bots at launch!
Server Status update-
As we continue to investigate server stability, there may be some disconnections from matches at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.
The disconnects should be brief, and games should be playable shortly after.
An update on the parties-
We are investigating issues with parties, in the meantime the best workaround is to keep parties to the same platform.
