Release Date
 
I am sorry but i haven quite much of time to search in the forums for this but is there some kind of news about the release date of the old republic?

thanks in advance :D

Alkonium 01-14-2009 05:21 PM

No, nothing yet. Be patient. The wait will be worth it.

adamqd 01-14-2009 05:36 PM

I'm waiting impatiently :D, I guess we'll have beta sometime in the second half of the year with a may 2010 release :fngrscrsd:

Lol Alkonium, at first glance I thought you had a Heaven17 album cover for an Avatar hehe

GeneralPloKoon 01-14-2009 07:57 PM

It releases 12/12/12. Fantastic!

memarik 01-15-2009 03:40 AM

are you shore that it is in 121212? or is it a joke? cos i cant wait so long :(
i heard at some place that it would be out in the end of this year or something maeby at crismas of 2009.

cos if you look at the documentary they have made it seems that they have made the game allready a lot as they say in the video they dont want to show everything allready that they have made cos it gonna be a big chrismas present :P

As someone who has followed the development of many MMO's, all I can tell you is...

Don't hold your breath.

<sarcasm> Hopefully LA pushes another publisher to a Christmas deadline and The Old Republic ends up being a nice polished product like TSL. </sarcasm>

Iron Rose 01-18-2009 12:25 AM

I just hope the release it when its done, so we can have smooth launch... yeah like thats gonna happen...

Nedak 01-18-2009 04:05 AM

Threads like these kill me.

But to answer the question. No

Gargoyle King 01-18-2009 09:15 AM

I think the game is still heavily in development and is bound to make numerous changes before it's release. Personally, i'm not expecting a release till late 2010/early 2011 at the very earliest.

GeneralPloKoon 01-18-2009 04:51 PM

Call me crazy, but I wouldn't be surprised if it releases this September.

Hallucination 01-18-2009 11:58 PM

Any reason behind that idea or is it just a hunch?

GeneralPloKoon 01-19-2009 02:05 AM

No, I AM crazy. Fantastic!

Ahhh well, it might, you may not have much hope, but they have kept the development of the game under wraps for 3 years, the game is already in a playable state... Believe me, LA aren't dumb enough to make the same mistake twice, I mean Lucas himself might be, but I'm sure his 'highly' paid employees are not. (Assuming we're talking about TSL here)

In any case, I can imagine either early 2010 - early 2011. It'll probably be within that time frame. That would give it a reasonable development time of 5 years, that's half a decade, it's quite a long time for a game to be made. If this is the case, the game should ship pretty much flawless.

GeneralPloKoon 01-19-2009 02:01 PM

The game doesn't need to be finished though, i'm sure many expansion packs are going to be released.

There is a difference between beta and finished.

In truth, you cannot finish an mmo. It just eventually dies. Thus why you constantly work in a never ending late beta stage.

World of Warcraft is still being patched, fixed, updated, etc every month with new things to keep it going. I don't know the exact number, but its still in its beta run.

Expansion packs simply add more, and if you spend time and effort on the game you shouldn't need to patch it with expansions. World of Warcraft was more than big enough before its expansions, and now its grown too large for comfort.

I am expecting a nice 2014 release, around August. Just a personal hunch going on nothing but my connection to the force...

Darklink41 01-21-2009 06:02 PM

I was thinking open beta at late 2009 or early 2010. Full game probably released summer of 2010.

Steve-O Kreesh 01-22-2009 07:26 PM

As long as Bioware gives me enough time to save up for a new laptop, they can release the game whenever they want. :)

ICExMikey 03-05-2009 01:33 AM

usually takes 2-3 years from official announcement before an mmo will see store shelves. there may not be any stores left by then

Jeff 03-05-2009 01:56 AM

Well this has been in development long before it was announced, I am hoping for the beta to begin late this year with a Q1 or Q2 2010 release date.

Tommycat 03-05-2009 05:59 AM

I think they'll probably try for Christmas this year. Not so much because christmas release, but more because they don't want the enthusiasm to die off before release. I think that's why they announced when they did.

and look what that did for AOC for example :raise:

i think it will take a long time before we can actually play his game. maybe end of 2011.

Saenjaina 06-03-2009 06:12 PM

They will want to release the game when the hype is at its peak. I doubt they will want to wait too long, and thereby risking the hype/interest to fall. Though that would probably only be relevant after a few years. From my experience, hype evolves pretty much like any other disease. ;)

But if they have a financial advantage, then they can push it until they consider the game to be in a solid state. Much like how Blizzard progresses.

Exactly what I'm thinking. Good call, jeffu :)

October 2010 is unofficial rumours but sounds like a very possible month to release the game!
