Riccitello hints at spring 2011 release for The Old Republic

EA president John Riccitello has hinted that Star Wars: The Old Republic may not release until spring 2011.

Speaking in an financial call last night, he didn’t mention the game in question, other then saying it was “our major MMO.”

As far as we know, The Old Republic is the only “major MMO” EA has in the works.

“One key driver is going to be the launch date of our major MMO. As it stands today, the game is making great progress towards a spring 2011 launch,” said the exec.

“But given the volatility of this particular sector and the fact that we haven’t yet provided a specific launch date, at least for now, we’re excluding the revenue, or will be excluding the revenue, from our FY11 plans.”

The last a date was heard for The Old Republic was back in August, when it was hinted the game would see a release in September this year.

No official date has ever been put on the game, however.
