Today, Executive Producer Lorin “DeadMeat” Jameson posted the latest information about DCUO Free to Play launch:
I know there have been a lot of rumors and questions (and unfortunate incorrect statements) about when we will be launching our new Free-to-Play model and I did want to clear things up. We have not actually stated an official date yet but we are working hard and making great progress and we are close. We do want to make sure that everything is ready before we announce a date but we will try and give you plenty of advance notice when it will happen.
The maintenance and patch happening today on the PC Servers and soon on the PS3 ones are one of the final steps in getting ready. We are very excited about this launch and want to ensure that it is as smooth as possible. In Developer terms we are working towards a State (everything ready) not a Date. I know everyone wants to know when and we appreciate your patience on this.
