:point_right:IMPORTANT DATES TO WATCH​:point_left:

:sparkles:Wednesday, October 9th​:sparkles:
We start putting the chairs on the tables.

DC Universe will prompt you to download an update. Once you download that update, you will no longer be able to access the vibrant and charming DC Universe Community. Instead, it will be replaced with a charming “Coming Soon” state, which will link you to a helpful news article that will update live as we approach the launch of the New Community.

:sparkles:Monday, October 14th​:sparkles:
We turn off the lights.

Even if you haven’t downloaded the update, in the hopes of participating in just ONE MORE hilarious and thought-provoking conversation, we’re sorry to say that as of October 14th, the Community will be closed to all.

We will begin slowly rolling the New Community out, so you may end up seeing it live sooner than some others. But rain or shine, EVERYONE will be able to access the New Community by…

:sparkles:Wednesday, October 23rd​:sparkles:
We’re back, and better than ever!

If you’ve ever visited our community and said “this is pretty cool, but can’t there be MORE?” Well my friend, have we got the digital house party for you. Read more below to hear about all the delicious features you’ll be partaking in!

:sparkles:Community Week - Wednesday, October 23rd- Wednesday, October 30th​:sparkles:
Your con away from home!

What gigantic release would be complete without a dedicated celebration? For 7 days straight, we’ll be joined by the best and brightest of the DC Universe, including talent from DC Universe Originals, top notch comic book talent, DC game developers, licensed DC collectibles professionals & designers, and more! It all kicks off on Wednesday, October 23rd, with a live Q&A featuring the one, the only, Anna Diop, who you all know as Starfire from Titans!

I’m going to have a two-week-long mental breakdown when the community goes dark but it’ll be SO COOL when we come back.

What about on PC? This addresses when the update will go out to app users, but is the 9th or the 14th when it will no longer be available to users that access through a browser?

@zulmara5 The community will be shut down for roughly 2 weeks while they do MASSIVE upgrades to it. In that time all of this section will be unavailable. (But the DCU Book Club server will be open!)

@zulmara5.38205: They’re going to be upgrading the forums, but we won’t be able to access the forums while they do it. That’ll take about two weeks.
