It's possible dates are manually entered, and if the developer is somewhere in Asia that would count as released on 31st December, no?

I am in a +11 time zone.

If it was 7:30PM where I was, then +12 is 8:30pm, +13 is 9PM
This still isn't December 31st.

I think it's as Duki said and the dates are probably manually entered.

Except you clearly said it was 19:30 EST, which is UTC-5 (00:30 UTC, very clearly the 31st if all times are kept in UTC on the server, which is very likely)

um... It's December 30th, 7:30PM Eastern Standard time.

Reading the datetime of your post, however, I see it was not actually 19:30 EST (rather, it was 03:30) and question why you said it was.
<- Lives in EST zone (AEST != EST ;>)

Wait, there's a difference between EST and Australian EST?

To other who know not, Krudda has absolutely no idea how to calculate time in other regions even though he thinks he does.

Please, should I cue the MEANWHILE IN AUSTRALIA memes at you to show how different Australia is from the rest of the world ?

It's a completely different dimension bro.
