Dual Universe is looking at a potential 2022 release according to a recent Q&A posted on the Dual Universe forums.
Realistically speaking, we have too much to do with the time that’s left this year to get to a state where we feel the game is ready for launch. Our current plan is “at some point in 2022”, and we’re targeting mid-year. That projection is tentative, depending largely on our progress and the feedback we get from our community, so please don’t hold this as a commitment. It could be sooner, it could be a bit later. The state of the game will dictate the date.
The post goes on to answer questions regarding communication from Novaquark, PvE content and a potential wipe going into release.
