Bioware Targeting Spring 2011 Release Date For Star Wars: The Old Republic

leave a comment »

Those of you expecting to get your hands on the next Star Wars MMO this year will be somewhat disappointed as Bioware this morning has confirmed rumours that it is indeed looking to release its Star Wars MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, sometime in Spring 2011.

This confirmation coincides with EA big shot John Riccitiello hinting toward the release of a ‘big name’ MMO in Spring 2011.

BioWare’s Sean Dahlberg wrote the following splurge on the official forum:

“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 http://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.”

I would much rather that they take the time to get this *right*, as this looks like one of the most promising MMORPG’s that we’ve seen in years.

As far as this year goes though, there is of course Square Enix’s forthcoming Final Fantasy XIV as well as the little matter of that pesky World Of Warcraft expansion pack which may shift a couple of units. A potential cult hit you might say.
