As most of you probably guessed, the last news was an April Fools joke :)
We are a bit surprised that we fooled so many people with our little joke and we hope also that you're not too deeply disappointed :P Do not take our last news too seriously :) However, the part about a working anti-alt system which is already implemented is real.
Also, as we mentioned long ago, "2077" has nothing to do with our server except being its temporary name, set in times where we had no idea about what we are going to design. As you might expect, action will take place closer to Fallout 1 times. The project will be officially renamed in the future.
For now, we're still busy with development and you can be sure that any beta test, where you could participate, will be announced in some better time than 01.04 ;)
