Now look what you’ve done, EA. You made the Stormtrooper cry. For shame.

EA CFO Eric Brown said during today’s Lazard Capital Markets Technology and Media Conference reiterated that the firm would not release Star Wars: The Old Republic during the firm’s FY11. At the same time, he reconfirmed that it will be released sometime during calender 2011.

“So we said it’s going to launch sometime in calendar, but not within Fiscal 11,” said Brown. “So that basically pens down between, you know, April 1st and December 31st of this calendar year.

“It’s also reasonable to infer that it’s not in our Q1 guidance. We gave Q1 Fiscal 11, Fiscal 12 non-gap revenue guidance, minus 39 minus 44 cents and I think it’s not unreasonable to infer that it’s not included in that 90 day period.”

So, for those hopeful that the game would be out sometime when the weather was balmy and sunny, sorry. Join the rest of us who are figuring sometime between the beginning of September and the end of December.
