If their reviews come up tomorrow, they were probably waiting to at least play with the community in case it turns into a battlefield 4 type mess.

This. Also destructoid is doing the same. I believe DF is following as well. It really is the best/most accurate way to review an online only MP game.

Probably because after disasters like Battlefield 4 they want to wait and confirm the servers are not complete trash and the game is playable. Though will be interesting if they do it for the yearly Battlefield and Call of Duty's when they come up

Curses for those sites to attempt to make revenue while giving their fans something they might want to read.

Yeah...

Whilst I can agree with what they're doing is sort of fair, with a game like this, being an online only experience. What happens though if the servers go pop on the day of release? Kind of like what happened with GTA V?

Do they say it was a total flop? Do they wait for it to stabilize?

I actually read the article from Giantbomb by Jeff Gerstmann,and I think it is the best and most honest approach for people who go to their sites. No one really knows how the game will handle in retail which will ultimately determine the game quality since you cannot access the menu unless you can connect to the server.
