SOE's official (and inaccurate) Progression Server timeline

Contents

Official Project 1999 Timeline

The following timeline was generously provided by the staff (see [1]). While their plans can change at any time, it is expected that Green will follow this timeline.

NOTE: Keep in mind that this does not follow the Patch Notes page exactly, as the original live developers were a bit less organized, and would sometimes release multiple patches in a month (which Project 1999 then combines into a monthly patch).
