LucasArts has confirmed that Star Wars: The Old Republic is on for a targeted spring 2011 release date.

EA president John Riccitello said in a financial call last night that the company’s “major MMO” was penciled in for a spring release next year, but didn’t mention the BioWare game by name.

LucasArts confirmed in a statement (via IncGamers) that the MMO is, rather obviously, TOR.

“While we have not announced a specific date, we can confirm that we are targeting a spring 2011 release for Star Wars: The Old Republic. We’ve got a lot of exciting updates and reveals planned throughout 2010, including the first-ever hands-on testing for the game,” said part of the statement.

At least 16 months to go, then. Still, at least you get to “be” a Jedi. Next year.

    2011?

    I wonder future Hunam will still care about SWTOR in 2011.

    Thats a ridiculous amount of time away, especially when you consider how much has been said and shown of the game already.

    Yeah, they’ve basically shown us every class and world a year before we can even think about playing it, not to mention that 2010 is going to be a pretty big year and well, the game kind of looks dated now, let alone in a years time.

    On the plus side, it’ll be the first MMO launch for years that wasn’t shonky and held together by tape.

    MMO’s graphics will always be dated. They can’t make the engine so top notch that it puts those with dated computers unable to play. I am waiting for this game to see how it will do.

    Need me some Sith action. Was Imperial in SWG, rolling Sith in TOR. Just can’t decide between Sith Inquisitor or Imperial Agent.

    Sith Inquisitor for me. If I am still alive in 2011 which is ages away – I will be old by then.
