IIs there an estimate when EAL will end? and if there will be a "time off" before global launch?

What’s up guys I wanted to ask if there’s any info about when EAL period will end ?
or maybe a rough estimate from now?

on that note… do you guys think it will be a good idea to have a certain amount of time ‘off’ before the game actually release? or you would like to have a stight dive deep into global launch from EAL?
