THE BUZZ: EA has affirmed its 2011 target to release for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

It was revealed last month that the game’s release date will be tied to the current beta and, if everything goes well, then the Force will be with us before Christmas.

Electronic Arts CFO Eric Brown told Gamasutra:

“We have a date set internally [for calendar Q4], with a lot of assumptions around it.  We’re not done until we’re done… We’re not going to know with enough certainty to publicly announce a release date until later this month or sometime in October.”

EGM’s TAKE: Asking gamers to pre-order a title that remains in limbo may not be the same as an invitation to the dark side, but EA deserves any lumps it gets.  If the game manages to deliver on its promise then all will be forgiven, but for those who have been looking forward to the latest entry in the Star Wars saga the wait is worse than dinner with a Sarlac.
