It's true, that's what Dustin Browder said.
As for beta, it is expected to last 4~6 months, and in intervals of each country.
North America for so long, then Europe, then Korea.
If they intend to release it before Christmas, then they have to drop the beta time, and that could lead to an unbalanced or buggy game in the conclusion, as they want it perfect for the final release.
