THE BUZZ: BioWare has stated it is still targeting a 2011 release for Star Wars: The Old Republic, but delays are always a possibility.

It was previously mentioned that EA has factored in a delay to 2012 in its financial plans, however Stephen Reid, Online Community Manager for BioWare, has told fans that a 2011 release is still the main target:

“We are in active and extensive testing for The Old Republic. We’re aiming to release the game in the holiday 2011 window.”

“However, as with any large and complex game project, there’s always the possibility of slippage. Always. That is why we have always said we’re aiming for that window, because it’s possible that unforeseen issues may push the date. Eric Brown is doing what he’s paid to do – letting investors know that the possibility exists. A possibility doesn’t mean a certainty.”

“Despite what doom-sayers may try and tell you, we are still very much aiming to ship in the holiday 2011 window.”

EGM’s TAKE: We hope that the game does make a 2011 release date because fans who have pre-ordered are not going to be happy to hear of a delay, especially when they haven’t even been given a solid release date.

Can The Old Republic take on World of Warcraft?
