Time to dash hopes that BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic would arrive in 2010. The studio has confirmed suspicions on their official message boards that Electronic Arts' unnamed MMO launching in spring 2011 that was mentioned yesterday is, in fact, Star Wars: The Old Republic.
"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," said community manager Sean Dahlberg in a brief statement. "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."
Bummer, but at least some fans will have a chance to play it in 2010!
