Star Wars: The Old Republic Release Date Is Tied To The Beta

Star Wars the Old Republic

The release date for the mega-MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic is still unknown. Many gamers, myself included, have been wondering what BioWare and EA are waiting for. According to EA Labels boss, Frank Gibeau, the reason they haven't committed to a release date yet is they want to see how well the beta goes.

"It is definitely tied to the beta test feedback that's ongoing and so far, so good. We feel good about the date that we're heading towards but you're right, you could have a Crazy Ivan show up in the September/October beta test and be like, 'wow, I've got to fix that.'"

During their PAX panel last weekend BioWare announced the SW:TOR beta would begin on September 2, 2011. That's this Friday, people! The amount of bugs, glitches and problems discovered over upcoming beta weekends will determine when the game is released. BioWare and EA are still aiming for this holiday but they don't want to rush The Old Republic.

"We're totally focused on quality, so whatever the beta test tells us is what will be the determining variable on when we will hit."

Star Wars: The Old Republic is a PC exclusive that will be released "when it's ready."
