At a recent Third Party Viewer meeting at 17 minutes / 12 seconds Oz Linden via voice chat in public said that Sansar Open Beta opening starts on Monday. He then quickly changed that seconds later by saying “next week anyway” which is rather interesting.
Oz Linden said that Second Life is not going away – not even a little bit. Yay! 🙂
If this news is correct then this is very exciting news for those interested in trying out the Sansar Open Beta finally after a long wait.
During the past week three new videos of Sansar Creator Preview have been uploaded on the official Sansar YouTube channel. Sansar Creator Preview will open to the public sometime before the end of the summer.
