👋 Update 08/31:

Hey all, we ran into hiccups that unfortunately prevented us from providing the weekly update today. You can expect the update in full tomorrow, and we appreciate your patience in the meantime.

Hey #Team-

Brow furling, Ryan scrunches his nose and looks at his left foot. He grips the base of his black and white sneaker, and with a momentary struggle removes it. Sand furiously dumps onto the floor.

Let’s try that again.

Hey #TeamShadow,

Back from Shadow Island, I’m excited to welcome you to this week’s activation update!

For this week, unfortunately some users promised August 2020 for Chicago and Amsterdam will have their activation delayed to early September 2020. We’re sorry for this, and impacted users should receive an email by the end of the week with confirmation of their new delivery date. We’ll provide final details in next week’s update too.

Our team continues their work on stability for the Texas datacenter in preparation for September 2020 activations and New York is making it’s way through the backlog, all while California and Paris move along at relatively steady paces.
 

Thank you for your continued patience as you wait for your Shadow!  
 

As a reminder:
-We activate Monday through Thursday

-Beginning at 8am local time each day for each datacenter
 

Below is the activation information by datacenter. You can check which datacenter you belong to here

It depends on what datacenter you’re going to be on.

Are we getting a weekly update this week or not? 

It’s got to be a bank holiday in Paris and that is why we do not have the update.

There is no “bank holiday” today in Paris. This 08/24 post has been edited :

These people saying they have been waiting since 2019 and have to wait until 2021 are talking about upgrades to higher spec shadows. They already have their boost's so be grateful.

I ordered on 22nd August 2020 and won't receive until February 2021, just chill, time flies by so quickly. Forget about it and before you know it, the activation email will pop up in your email and away you go! 

If pre-order date is August 20th or later:

Activation by end of December 2020

 

So umm?? I have to wait for 3 months?? I want to play games now 

I have been waiting since OCTOBER 2019 and still waiting.  Any contact I try to make to you guys gets no response even when raising tickets for technical issues, what the hell is going on there?  My pre-order is about to celebrate a birthday what will the gift be, a fulfilled order?!!

Victim of your own success. Shadow seems great. First activation should be in July. Changed to August. No date now. I am afraid that I will not be activated until next year. Well I still hope, but you've lost credibility

When was your pre-order?

I ordered on June 4th

then its either october or early september
