Alot of speculation has come up on the subject of the release date. At first, SWGB was thought to be out sometime during Winter, then it was X-Mas, then Thanksgiving, THEN mid Nov., now on Amazon.com it's listed as Nov. 1. What is everyone's opinion on the release date? Do yo think it will be out earlier than origonally thought, or will it pull an Empire Earth and be delayed for MONTHS!?!? Your thoughts please...

I think it will be released in November. They began beta testing already. Next step is going gold....

The latest preview (gamesdomain) says it'll be released in november, so thats my guess.

They probably got it off Amazon, but November is probably the correct date :D

I have no problem with the release date, and Nov is in the winter and it is kinda sorta around Christmas time.

there's no way this game is going to pull off an empire earth b/c for one thing this game is using the ensemble studios engine. empire earth is different from the AoK engine. i've heard november, so i'm expecting it to arrive by then. the release date is not the issue to me, rather how the game plays using elements from the SW universe...

Your right GB will release on time because... it has to.

I think a mid Nov. release (Nov. 10th-20th) would be reasonable. But that's like 2 months away! Damn it!

I wouldn't normally mind waiting an extra 2 weeks but that would be when GC comes out so I really really need this game to be released Nov. 1st! I'm strapped for cash I tell ya!! :o

I think it'll come out sometime in Nov. Whether or not it'll be out on the 1st, I don't know...But I wouldn't mind if it was delayed. Delays aren't necissarially bad, it just means the company is imporving the game, rather then releasing a buggy game. Besides, I doubt this can beat anything Blizz has ever done ;)

This game isn't meant to beat anything Blizzard ever did, it's to provide a fun SW RTS. I don't care if it's not as good as Starcraft, as long as it's a FUN SW RTS

I think he was talking about the huge delays that Blizzard has, not the game itself.

Probably in November, but maybe a little later because of unforeseen delays...

oops
now my credibility has taken a hit.
Anyways, I don't care when the game comes out, as long as it isn't after Nov 1st:D :D
