Star Wars: The Old Republic Confirmed for 2011

Were you hoping to play Star Wars: The Old Republic sometime this year? It's not going to happen, but there's a New Hope definitely for 2011.

Announced on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic forums, BioWare is targeting a spring 2011 release date for the highly anticipated MMO.

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 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.

I suppose that gives us all time to go back to the first two KotOR games for another play through, perhaps even the "complete" version of The Sith Lords.

    Just hope I get in for some beta testing! :)

    I hope they have unlimited free trial (limited to lv 10 or whatever) but free for life trial. I prefer hourly game time (not monthly) or even daily but I'm hoping too much.

    I hope the game isn't just WoW with a Star Wars skin. I also hope there is something more to the game than story, something that will keep me playing when the stories run out. I hope it's actually an MMO, and not just an online rpg with a monthly fee.
