While scouring through PearlAbyss's facebook page, I came across an interesting piece of tidbit. Alex Mart commented about the lack of progress on the Black Desert Project and someone from PearlAbyss replied with this juicy information.
you mean our official PearlAbyss homepage? that's right. T_T we had no time to redesign it. But the official Black Desert site will be open around this month.
The post was stamped July 5 at 10:01 AM. There's two week left in July so we should be seeing the website pop up soon if what PearlAbyss said is true. They also promise a brand new video and more information once the official website launches.
This aligns nicely with the fact that the beta was pushed back to "Fall 2013". If the website launches by the end of July, we can see a beta sign-up process for all of August, and selected users can start testing in September or the beginning of Fall.
