EA Confirms The Old Republic MMO Will Miss First Quarter of 2011

Electronic Arts yesterday announced that it’s Star Wars MMO, developed by Bioware, will miss it’s 2nd release window. Originally scheduled for the 2010 fiscal year, it was announced today at the Credit Suisse 2010 Technology Conference by EA’s CFO Eric Brown that The Old Republic isn’t expected to ship until fiscal year 2012, which begins April 2011.

Reasoning behind the longer wait weren’t given, although the game is the largest project in EA’s history, with millions of dollars already being spent on the game. Hopefully, the fruits of those developers labors pay off in the end.

An avid gamer since birth, I consider myself a new-age gamer. My first system was the N64, but the first system I really cared about was my Xbox Original. I'm a computer science major in college, and spend all my money on games, and stuff I don't need. I've never played Zelda or many Mario games in my youth. I'm also a huge sports fan, and a chick flick lover. My favorite games include Gears of War, Halo, Fallout, GTA, Mass Effect, and Metal Gear Solid.
