That's the million dollar question
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

This. It was spelled out for you way back in November. In fact, I think they actually extended it past Jan 7 to later that month, iirc.
If you pre-bought after the fact expecting to get early access, you were just foolish/incapable of reading. Don't blame Bioware for your own ignorance/stupidity.

I wondered the same thing as my download speed has been ridiculously slow lately because of connection issues. Nonetheless over a ridiculous time of a day and two nights I'm downloaded. But I'm nearly certain it will never be released in stores unless it's compiled with the actual game for purchase at some time. That's why it's their 'digital expansion' I'm afraid.
There is only Power, and those too weak to seek it.

Cutoff was Jan 7th. . . . and after Jan 7th I believe they removed EVERYTHING that mentioned early-access. Not once did I ever see the words EARLY ACCESS without Jan 7th plastered all over it. . .

You have three days left. Stop complaining.

I wish I had done a screen capture, because it said Pre-Order for early access, and I'm not the only one that had seen this

Furthermore, I have every right to complain, they took the money readily enough, you pay for a service, you have every expectation to recieve the goods or services.
Ever go into a McDonalds and order a big mac meal, and they tell you you can get your meal later?
