I really hope they'll unlock that for the real release, because indeed, it would be a pretty bad and dumb move if they kept it gender locked in the end.
Though, that's just wishful thinking for now, gotta wait and see...
EDIT : Meh, found recent news on the game.

Dumb move is utterly dumb, but they still can change that in the end, seeing people will be unhappy with that decision, which is pretty much the case of... Everybody!Q: Will each class be accessible for both gender?
A: In Cabal II, the female gender will hold the ranged classes, while the male gender will assume the melee classes.
On another note, there's already one publisher who's officially going to host an English server for three years : Asiasoft, who's already hosting Cabal Online in the SEA area.
They're going to host it in English and Thai, and people in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore will be able to play it.

Still waiting to know who'll take over European area.
