Whatever this means, but actual you could see this on the AGv3 beta-site:

The Armor Games beta is shutting down on August 31, 2012! Learn More / Give Feedback

Maybe its only a shutdown for more work, but maybe... well, we will see^^

The link redirects to a GetSatisfaction thread, and this caught my eye:
This is a major step forward, and we're excited about what the rest of the year will bring.

Though if you take the pessimistic route, this could just be a cover up for them scrapping AG3.

Ron said that he was pleased to announce this update, so it sounds like it's a step in the right direction.

Does this mean AG3 will overtake AG2 on September 1, or will the beta site just be unavailable starting on that day? What does it mean that they're "shutting down open beta"?

I dont think that it would be that "easy", in add to what Ghost posted from GetSatisfaction, i would say its a major update... but not the release.
Or they prepared for the last step(s)... i see some open (and closed) betas shut down a while before the release.

Remember how Mmorrison changed his name? I could only assume that that was them testing the name-changing feature upcoming in AG3. That WAS something that they planned. I don't see what else it could be.

So yeah, it seems like they're making a bit of progress and we should see some result hopefully within the next year.

Hrm, maybe they'll start up the closed beta again soon? We'll see.

Or he didn't want his actual name displayed here.

They've always been able to change names here as well.

and when he posted that there's the thing on the left like how he felt about what he was writing i guess, and for him it said "i'm stoked" perhaps it's finally getting close to AG3

A lot of "it's too soon for this" comments on GS. Very confusing. How is it in any way too soon, ha? I'm glad they're making progress.

As for the direction, i'm unsure. Maybe a closed beta, but for what? Would having a closed beta for the achievement system etc be feasible?

Isn't the open beta supposed to come after the closed beta? Or is it not unusual for a site to have multiple open and closed beta phases?

This all makes very little sense to me... =P

Yeah, mostly its closed, open, release... but could happen they decide to go on nother closed phase because of a really big major update (sure, not that often, but its possible and happend before on other sites).
