Although this beta was originally announced for 2014, Sony Online Entertainment’s John Smedley, has now confirmed that the beta will be coming in January, although he is not exactly sure about the date. On Twitter he wrote (in reply to a fan’s question regarding the 2014 release date):
We tried hard. As it happens only a few weeks to go. Either the week of the 13th or 20th.
