EA's financial results report was released to the public today, and alongside the various bits of fiscal information is one important tidbit for fans of Star Wars: The Old Republic. On page 17 of the document, we find "The Packaged Goods title release schedule excludes Star Wars: The Old Republic, which is expected to launch in either Q2 FY12 or Q3 FY12," where Q2 FY12 and Q3 FY12 correspond to July through September and October through December, respectively, of this year.
Just to get out there for all of us.....

It will certainly be interesting to see how the launch of this one plays out. I think a lot of SW fans will be somewhat satisfied, however a lot of KOTOR fans will not. IMO of course.

KotOR and Star Wars Galaxies fans alike. It's way too similar to WoW for my taste, not even my intense love of all things Star Wars can save my interest in TOR.

WoW just isn't my thing and it's disappointing that it's set the standard for the modern MMO. Star Wars Galaxies had some of the best guild, character development and PVP mechanics and now things like it are deemed outdated in the face of WoW.

Bleh.

The post says December at the latest. If we can trust this post, then it will be out 8 months or less. Not quite a year until launch, but it certainly could be, especially if they have to delay it.


I'm not really excited for this game though, but you never know how things will end up. I followed it on and off after they announced it and it just seems to get less interesting with every update they make. I really hope they do a free trial weekend, open beta, or something like that. I would like to give it a try without giving them my money first.

The Wow comparison's are stretching it a bit at this point. It's an mmo yes, you level yes, however there's a whole lot that's different and pointed out by Bioware to be different and a new experience, otherwise what's the point.

I would invite anyone who thinks it's like Wow to get off the message board....and go check out firsthand at Bioware website for SWTor. It's not the next coming of christ, but it's not wow. It's like saying Lord of the Rings is too much like the Matrix becuase they both had 3 movies. Different Genre's.

Additionally Wow's genre allowes for them to expand into flying mounts, and find new creative ways to do additional dungeon crawls etc...been there...

Where does Star Wars have potential to grow into....Space....just like wow? I don't think so. It's way to early for me even to comment too much on this as much as I have. I've read reviews of those who were allowed 2 days access at Bioware, to play the game as they saw fit, and loved it, but I have to take it with a grain of salt as I'd say anything too and give rave reviews to play a next gen MMO long before the general populace lol.
