BioWare today confirmed the spring 2011 release window for Star Wars: The Old Republic that EA CEO John Ricitiello mentioned yesterday, promising exciting updates and reveals throughout 2010.
Ricitiello spoke about the release window yesterday during an EA financial update conference call. Now BioWare's Sean Dahlberg confirms the news via a message posted this morning on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic message boards.
While we have not announced a specific date, we can confirm that we are targeting a spring 2011 release for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. We've got a lot of exciting updates and reveals planned throughout 2010, including the first-ever hands-on testing for the game. It's not too late to sign up to be a game tester, so go to www.swtor.com/tester and sign up today. We can't wait to share more about the game with you as we progress through the year, so make sure you stay tuned to the official website for details.
While it is a bit of a disappointment that we won't be seeing the game launch this year, I like the idea that BioWare still has a year's worth of new things to reveal. It makes you wonder what cards the developer is holding close to its chest.
