I'm curious. Even though March is a few months away and I do work in retail and March is usually a generic date that they give us so that we can have something to go by and give comfort out to the ppl wanting it.

but seriously, is it looking like it will be out by March or are we looking more like a 2nd half of 2002 release?

Welcome Terrin.:)

Last I heard the game is progressing well and on track for March.

Well Stormhammer, looks like you're gonna need to order a few extra shipments of those Jedi medallions.::chewie:

I could give you a chocalate jedi medallion but that would be stealing stormhammers one pride and joy :D

Yes, we're still on track for a March release. It's posted in the game FAQ at:

yes, welcome also:)
I think it was in a post by a Dev that they said they were progressing nicely a little while ago.
Hey since we've got the updated boards, i've seen KISS Army checking the boards a few of times now so "Death to the disbelievers!" I say, ahem...yes...well:o

Edit:U see!? :p

Yes, we're still on track for a March release

You know, I read this in the FAQ, but it's nowhere near as reassuring than hearing it from a developer.

Good to hear Kenn, thanks for stopping by again!(I didn't mean to make that sound like a rhyme):D

Wow, thanks for the warm reception... (sifts though his new gift basket) I guess now wouldn't be a good time to tell ppl I'm more of a Trek fan then a Star Wars fans (deflects the rotten fruit and vegetables with his lightsabre) :D

That's good to know that it's still on track for March. I'm really looking forward to getting in multiplayer and staying up all night having lightsabre battles!

And I think I need another chocolate medallion... Me thinks it got lost in the mail :D

Mmmm....March....i suppose that is good....but it would be even better if you would release it on the 27th of febr. (my birthday) :D


Now dont look at me like that....oh well fine....March it is.... but if you fail to deliver i'll send :fett: to come after you... :D

Welcome to the forums, Terrin. :D Have a great time here. Here you go...

*hands over a chocolate Jedi Medallion*

They're tasty. ;)

I agree with you, SlowbieOne...it's great to have the release time confirmed by a Raven Dev. Thanks Kenn! :D

hey the last think we want is a rushed game...look what happened with WW2online, the fan wanted it but it was far from finished (what a mess). if they do need extra time let them have it. I dont want to buy the game only to find out there is a 20mb patch for error release the next day.

right
I hope its not rushed to be released together with attack of the clowns

And if Its rushed I hope we get all the necessary patches and if something isnt include in the game because of the rush they release it later for download

It'll be sometime in march. They've said the 1st so that they can play around a little with the dates....and it isnt being rushed, Raven are just very good at making these types of games. Actually a lot of games are being made quicker lately :)

StormHammer

I agree with Rave. When you have a bunch of people with a wealth of experience using and expanding a particular game engine, the game development should not take anywhere near as long as building an engine first, or even as you go along.

Unless, of course, you are aiming to produce some kind of massive RPG title with it. ;)

I hope you are right
What worries me is that so little has been said about mp

...

Wouldn't that mean it'd be released two months LATER?

I havent been reading Ep II news
I thaught It was going to be released earlier:o

Anyway, Itd probably be better for sells to release it by the time the movie is released

I hope i don't upset any1 here but..............

August was given as an expected release date :(

March would be a lot better tho, I really need to play this game before i get too old to enjoy it.

Hi Tay-Mar, welcome to jk2.net.:)

I wouldn't pay too much attention to that August release date since just last week Kenn Hoekstra himself stopped by and said that the game is still right on schedule for a March release.

Welcome to the forums, Tay-Mar. :D Hope you enjoy your stay. Here...

*hands over a chocolate Jedi Medallion*

There you go. ;)

Yeah, as SlowbieOne said, Kenn (aka KISS Army), mentioned March. So barring some unforeseen circumstances, I'd go with that. ;)

And if you dont understand what these guys are saying Tay-Mar, Kenn works at Raven, thats why we are not worried about release date much now :D
