well the release date is currently set for may. if you know someone on the beta they can let you in it in march. its unkown why they are doing this but i feel it's so they dont overload HOME with millions in one day.
how do i know this? ive spoken with someone who's brother is on the developing team. apparently he had to skip a vacation in may or something like that because HOME was being released.
you can choose to beleive or not beleive this but personally i think it's solid info.
