Star Wars: The Old Republic – September Release Date Hinted

By Posted 27 Jan 2011, 10:59

We have a bit of disappointing news now for all you PC gamers out there who were hoping to start playing BioWare’s new MMORPG title Star Wars: The Old Republic this spring. It appears from recent reports that the game may not arrive now until later this year.

According to an article by Adam Barnes over at nowgamer.com, development sources have spoken to MCV recently and said that the upcoming game is not going to be released now until September 2011. However, a specific release date is yet to be confirmed.

If a recent comment from industry analyst Mike Hickey is anything to go by, then it doesn’t look like Electronic Arts investors have much faith in the Star Wars: The Old Republic game. Mike believes that many EA investors are betting against the SWTOR game achieving market success.

As Mike Sharkey over on the gamespy.com website reports, the Star Wars: The Old Republic game – which is set over 3,500 years before the rise of Darth Vader – will enable gamers to take on classic Star Wars universe roles, in an online battle between the Republic and the Sith Empire.

Were you looking forward to the game arriving sometime this spring?

    This is ridiculous. When I first heard about this game, I was really excited, I made their webpage my homepage and all, and looked forward to every Friday for a new peek at what soon was supposed to be my new second life (wow owning that place atm)…well at first they said early 2010, then October 2010, then Spring 2011, now late 2011?? Why?? WHY announce a game and tease potential players for long. I have grown TIRED of it. Now Cataclysm has come out, and quite frankly this game keeps fading back and back. I may even try DC online before I do this game. I think the marketting of this game was poorly planned, extremely poorly planned. By the time the game comes out, the hype wont be the same. If not compare the hype in the beginning vs now.

    Well perhaps it is like the makers of the new mmorpg, RIFT the dont want to realese before the game is fully finished and very polished. I love playing wow but the bugs/nerfs/buffs/general mayhem of the company who recieves 16.99 a month form 11 million subscribers. all i can say is some things can be done better.

    This kinda sucks. If you're gonna put down a release date, make it rational, achievable an drelaistic, rather than disappointing people over and over again. I hope this game is great, many people are saying it will be, while other are saying it won't (Though this the comeptition saying it will be bad). If the reviews are good, I'll play this game, but if they're bad I'll run like hell, all the controversy has made me paranoid.

    Are your retarded? Really, do you believe this BS? Not much faith in this game? It is of my strong opinion that this game will more likely be the BEST MMO I have ever played. I have played ALOT!

    As for those who are complaining about the release date, be patient. We all want to play this game. This game is going to be what another of it's kind should have been, and what so many are not.

    As for the press, most just suck. Media control, remember that. Do your own research and decide for yourself.

  • tyt

    i checked on another website it said to be realeased in 59 days

      I think that's when Q2 starts. I've almost lost all hope in this game now. They delaying the release date over and over again just make it seem like they are actually not that serious about it and most of it is just talk that they are going to have this awesome feature that no other game have!
