Neither underline is strictly dated, though deliberation that fans should see a password-protected servers really soon, a CTE will logically dump even earlier than that. There is a good possibility a CTE will be adult a few weeks before to a launch of Battlefield 1‘s arriving They Shall Not Pass DLC in sequence to exam it, or presumably earlier in time for February’s large update.
