EA have confirmed that The Old Republic will NOT be released in the Fiscal Year of 2011.
For those unaware that means that the game will be out in the business year of 2012 which begins April 1st 2011. This is not an early April fools joke either. Please read below:
Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello mentioned that a "major new massively multiplayer online game" would not be shipping within EA's 2011 fiscal year, which ends on March 31st, according to a report by Joystiq. EA CFO Eric Brown later confirmed that Star Wars: The Old Republic is "not included in our FY11 release slate."
So there you have it folks, set your calendars to sometime between April and June next year, as we won't be playing Star Wars: The Old Republic for a little while yet.
This doesn't come as much of a surprise, though, as the game was originally slated for a Spring 2011 release window, and given the fact that Spring generally begins between the middle and end of March, the April to June time-line makes perfect sense. So, I guess if you expected it earlier than that, well, don't!
This is BETTER news as they have even more time to make it as perfect as they can for release. Heres to hoping for a testing/ closed Beta test.
Sephiroth X: I'm shocked this forum is still up and running. I got super nostalgic for MxO and somehow found my way back. I miss you guys.

Rycus: Merry Christmas everyone. I haven't read any books and lately only game I've played is Ark. Pretty sad when I'm not even up to playing Magic which I've played for 25 years. And this place isn't ever going anywhere.
