    As we approach the end of 2020 and another year of development on Pantheon is in the books, it’s about time we get some real answers to the question that everyone is asking: WHEN IS ALPHA? This a detailed state of the game report and to-do list that explains the order of events that need to happen before Alpha testers can be brought in. It does not contain any exact dates, but if you just want general time frames to know whether or not you can reasonably expect to see Alpha in 2021, watch this video in full: https://youtu.be/wRhQPo1Dhzw

    Hopefully it is a short road with no trees or avalanches blocking the path.  I pledged for Alpha/Beta access, so I am patiently waiting, but super eager.  Thanks for the info that you and the other content streamers provide.  I am sure there are plenty of people that have either given up hope, or at least put Pantheon 'out of sight; out of mind' over the years as they stretch out, but I still think it will definitely be worth the wait. 

    I remember reading posts where people were guessing that Alpha would start in early 2019, and then early 2020, and now sometime in 2021... A lot of hopes and hype have been built on speculation, but I really really hope it starts by 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2021.  I have mainly been a console gamer for the last 5 years or so, so I am waiting to buy a new computer.  I want to wait to buy right around Alpha access, to get whats good then and not now...so, I am eagerly awaiting something semi solid as far as Alpha dates go.

    Thanks again, Baz.

    As a follow up to this, Chris Rowan recently made a rare appearance on the developer roundtable to lay out the official plan to get Pantheon to Alpha in 2021. Here are my cliff notes from that discussion: https://youtu.be/kiH1ilfLuTA

    I'd love to see the sort of roadmap you're talking about. I would definitely be cheering them along as they reach each milestone.

    It sounds like getting that upgrade done will be a very good thing.
