I know it's coming out soon, but does anybody know the month or at least when the beta is going to start?

    Soon.

    It's coming soon.

    Given that the universe is 13.8 billion years old, it's logical to assume that "soon" refers to less than that.

    So to answer your question:

    soon < 1.38×10(10)y (with an uncertainty of +- 100%)

    I don't know about you, but I'm excited.

    It's been in the 'coming soon' section of the store for a while now, I'm hoping it's a matter of a week or 2 but idk... if we're having a sweepstake, I'll take 3 weeks.

    At OC6 they started Facebook Horizon will launch next year with an invite-only closed beta being available towards the end of the year and into early next year. So i'd say the closed beta has already started and I'd also hope early next year would be the 1st quarter of 2020 (so maybe/hopefully between now and the end of March).

    I get the feeling it's Facebook's take on RecRoom or Altspace. A social app with lots of minigames.

    I'm expecting good things.

    I would imagine realising public beta at F8, now I’m not sure after being canceled.

    If there was ever a more important time that Facebook Horizon is needed...it's now. Social Distancing need not exist in the virtual world of Horizon. Hoping we get some release news soon :)
