I know that different MMOs with different Betas have done different things regarding beta characters.

For Rift in particular, the beta characters have persisted across the 6 betas -- will these characters persist after launch? Only for a privileged subset of players? (such as pre-orders / collector's editions, etc.)

Personally, I'm not optimistic, however I haven't yet found any official word from Tirion, so I thought I'd toss this out here.

I'd be interested in seeing a case of a game launch where they kept the beta characters. It seems rather counter-intuitive. – Shaun Feb 16 '11 at 17:27

From this FAQ

Will our closed-beta characters be wiped for the Head Start and launch of RIFT? Yes
