SWTOR not before April 2011

Star Wars: The Old Republic will not see the light of day until April 2011, EA’s officially confirmed.

Speaking at the Credit Suisse 2010 Technology Conference, EA CFO Eric Brown ruled out a fiscal 2011 release, saying it will instead release in the first nine months of the publisher’s fiscal 2012 (April-December 2011).

The BioWare MMO may still make its previously, unofficially said ‘spring 2011’ window, though a first quarter calendar 2011 release is now effectively nixed.

Brown noted it’s the first time EA’s made an official comment on the game’s release timing.
