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>

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.

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

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

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.

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...

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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