EDIT 2: I stand corrected. 3956 BBY it is.
Calling it an Interdictor is it's function, not it's type. Like a Heavy or light cruiser.

According to the Canon (Outbound Flight) the technology to create a gravitational field (The primary force used by an Interdictor to stop a ship from going into hyperspace) didn't exist until right before the Clone Wars.
