Primarily to give it more polish, which is significantly different from more Polish.

If you were hoping to trade your tank in for an airplane this month, you’re in for a bitter disappointment. World of Warplanes – the plane-focused buddy of the ever popular World of Tanks – will not be leaving beta this month – instead it will do so in November, on the 12th to be exact.
Wargaming.net announced the change in plans on the weekend in a press release on the official site, which explains that the new release date was set to allow the team more time for polish. As World of Warplanes‘ Director of Global Operations Vlad Belozerov explained:
“We are committed to releasing a great title and are doing everything to ensure that World of Warplanes gets the final polish we believe the game needs. The extra time will allow the development team to fine-tune the game balance and make sure that every feature is top-notch before launch.”
It’s not all bad news however, as the press release goes on to explain that experience points you have earned during the open beta will not be reset, as was originally planned. Instead, and I am quoting the site here because it is late and I’m not sure I fully understand, “the total sum of experience points you have earned on all warplanes will be evenly distributed between the pilots of the tier I warplanes.” And of course, with the open beta extended for another month and a half, this should give everyone plenty of time to rack up some extra time in the game and potentially get that sweet, sweet beta exclusive plane.
