It's actually "standard procedure" with many gaming companies like Blizzard, Epic Games, Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, Valve, and the like. Game companies usually do not make promises of a release date when they're not sure themselves--the worst thing that can happen is to release something that does not work properly. And considering the Tribunal system has the power to ban players, I think it is a great idea to have it launched when it is fully ready.
