The Delphi 64 beta which used to be an April’s fool, and a few days later turned out to incidentally be official after all, might finally begin next week.

You should see an invite later this week when we start sending them out.
So apparently the announcement was made somewhat early by Embarcadero, and they haven’t yet started sending invites, but things could be happening sometime next month.
