Star Wars: The Old Republic Release Date: Holiday 2011?

Star Wars the Old Republic

During the Electronic Arts quarterly investor conference call, EA did not confirm the release window for Star Wars: The Old Republic... but they came awfully close.

Categorizing the response to their offer of pre-orders and the success of the beta as a "series of good markers," EA's CEO John Riccitiello said the company intends to "focus strongly on Q3" for an Old Republic release. In non-corporate-speak, this indicates a likely release in the holiday season of 2011.

EA did reveal when it would finally tell us the SW:TOR release date, saying "In September, we'll give hard ship date."

EA has high hopes for the sci-fi MMO, and seems to be realistically considering the response of gamers in planning the release date. "Paying consumers can be very sharp," Riccitiello said. "[They have] high expectations of perfect performance, and that's what we intend to provide at launch."

"Until something's certain, it's not done," Riccitiello added.

We'll let you know in September, people. Stay tuned.
