STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC dated for spring 2011

What is perhaps the most anticipated computer game is going to be a bit longer in finally arriving. BioWare confirmed today that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be released sometime in the spring of 2011. It was fall of 2008 when BioWare announced that it was developing the massively-multiplayer online RPG.

Some people are saying this is too long a time to wait for this game. But I remember the winter of 2000 when LucasArts told us that we'd be getting Star Wars Galaxies, and that didn't come until the summer of 2003. And we all know how that turned out to be (okay, to be fair it was a great game at first before Sony Online Entertainment messed it up with "New Game Enhancements"). But this is BioWare we're talking about: the company that gave us Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic to begin with. If I have to wait a little longer to play this game, I can do that 'cuz I've got faith that it's just gonna make Star Wars: The Old Republic even better.

So be of good cheer y'all: soon we'll get to be play Jedi and Sith and smugglers (with - gasp - actual smuggling!) like never before :-)
