I bet that the reason they did not made a demo is because they are already behind with balancing the game. At E3 they avoided saying if the game was in a beta stage or not, even if they are down to the part of tweaking its features.
Total War: Rome II -> Sigh...
Total War: Rome II - EE -> Meh...
FK YOU CA THE DEMO DIDNT HAVE THE FACTIONS I WANTED
FK YOU CA WHY DID YOU NOT SHOWCASE THIS IN THE DEMO
FK YOU CA THE DEMO DOES NOT HAVE FULL GRAPHICAL OPTIONS
FK YOU CA THERE WAS 1 TINY LITTLE THING WRONG WITH THE DEMO GG RUINING THE FRANCHISE
I think he meant that the demo was modded so that actual battles could be played...
Actual game development alpha/beta status is certainly very different from mods alpha/beta status where new features can be added one day before release.
I do not understand , if a Demo is available for all the people that went at rezzed then why not release one?

Drink Whiskey and you'll feel better.
They most likely had a restricted Demo they used for Rezzed. There are many reasons not releasing it to the public, maybe the code isn't secure or restricted features can sorta be nudged loss to be explored.
For the CC3 demo back in the day you were only supposed to beable to play GDI but people learnt how to unlock Nod and a new faction Scrin? Which means we found out there were a third faction in the game and it was alien(Even if not playable in the demo).
Publicity wise it doesn't seem like a great idea either considering the response they have gotten so far they might now want the whole product being judged based on some separate piece of Alpha code.
