Valve has delayed the beta for its Dota 2 card game Artifact.

Artifact is scheduled to release in late-November, and the beta, which was to be held this month, has seen a delay.

The Artifact beta is now “currently planned” for November 19. This is according to notices sent out to those with beta keys.

It’s not an open beta, at least not yet. Valve handed out free game codes with beta access to International 2018 attendees. It did the same for PAX West attendees who joined the gameplay reveal.

Valve also handed out beta keys on its social media accounts, according to PC Gamer.

A delay for the beta has yet to be announced publicly by Valve on Steam or its social media channels.

Unless the game sees a delay, the beta will be a short one considering Artifact releases November 28.
