You will be old when The Old Republic comes out 13 Jan, 2010, 02:34 / 8 comments

During an annoucement by EA that it was lowering its 2010 fiscal projections, CEO John Riccitiello seems to have indirectly referenced Star Wars: The Old Republic's release window:
Riccitiello also said that the company is planning to launch "our major new MMO"--presumably BioWare Austin's Star Wars: The Old Republic--in "spring 2011." It was unclear if he meant calendar year 2011, or EA's 2011 fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2011.
Granted, it is indeed a presumption that he is referring to The Old Republic at all, since there are other possible EA-related MMO candidates. Still, given the lack of recent news on the project, I don't think many honestly expected to see The Old Republic before 2011 at this point.

Tingler Confirms: Kotaku confirms that Bioware confirms. So it's confirmed.

    The amazing Old Republic trailer came out in June last year, so judging from the above, the game might arrive 2 years after the trailer. Almost hard to believe, but not quite. LucasArts excel at PR disasters. Setting up a whole website with an epic trailer 2 years before the title's release is right up their alley.

    And... I'll bet my mojo account it gets cancelled before the end of this year too :)
