No Beta?

No, no Beta. People keep making baseless assertions like this:

Beta starts on the 19th of May for PC owners :) Consoles players will get the finished ( almost ) release.

But there will not be a Beta. The game will launch, in full, on May 19th. Console players get it in fall.

Some people (like this guy) might be trying to argue that since there will be patches between May and fall, the PC release is a "beta" but that's just a little mental game they're playing with themselves. The Devs have said May 19th is the full release, so that's what it is.
 
It's just labels, don't sweat it too much. The important thing is that we're getting the full release on the 19th, and hopefully they've identified all the big issues with Odyssey, and fixed them for the final build of the game. Some things will still probably need to be patched after release, but I'd wager that they've already fixed a lot of the bugs that the alpha still has
 
Looks like no beta, they want to feel the thrill of deploy-to-production day with a build months newer than the tested one!

Yes, Commander Data. We all understood the joke.

They could call it the second coming. It won’t change the fact that it will likely still be full of bugs and broken mechanics, worthy of the most beta-est of betas.

Actually, it was sarcasm.

But my definitely of what follows Alpha, is Beta, now you might say the beta is internal, but the Alpha only just finished and with over 5000 issues in the issue tracker, let's be kind and say that only 1 in 5 is a real issue and not a duplicate - that still leave 1000+ issues, now lets be even more optimistic, let's same half of the issues have already been fixed. That still leaves over 500 issues.
This is only the bugs, not the design flaws, like all the UI changes that need some serious work done to make them acceptable.
FDev have just 10 working days before release. To find, debug, fix and test all those issues.
Plus we know that Alpha was missing some features ( that is pretty much the definition of an Alpha release, it's not feature complete ) which means the some features will not get fully tested and stressed until the after the 19th when the player base just to see them and try them. ( This includes the full planet tech! )
So, in summary, Public Beta starts on the 19th. ( You and FDev can call it what you want, but I call it a Public Beta because that's what it will be. )

Some people said the world is flat, doesn't make it so
