Yesterday EA had a conference call discussing their reduced earnings report, and EA CEO John Riccitiello made mention that EA has a planned “MAJOR MMO” launch for Spring 2011. That leaves two options SWTOR or game we haven’t heard of yet. Well a short time after the confrence call the intertubes went on fire and our favorite SWTOR Community Manager Sean Dahlberg dropped this tidbit on the SWTOR forums:
While we have not announced a specific date, we can confirm that we are targeting a spring 2011 release for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. We’ve got a lot of exciting updates and reveals planned throughout 2010, including the first-ever hands-on testing for the game. It’s not too late to sign up to be a game tester, so go to www.swtor.com/tester and sign up today. We can’t wait to share more about the game with you as we progress through the year, so make sure you stay tuned to the official website for details.
So we get two juicy Star Wars The Old Republic tidbits from Sean, first SPring 2011 is the launch window and second the Beta will begin this year!
