Today from twitter we see what appears to be a hint from the “Conductor”
that SWTOR intends to stay with the traditional pattern of a Tuesday release. From the tweet interaction of Alejandro141614 to Stephen reid of Bioware we get this hint…..
In which Stephen
replied “Were going traditional!”
Well that can help to narrow it down a bit. If we take into consideration that the testing weekends start in September and assuming that they at least will last a month, maybe more. We might then assume that they will need at least the month of October to work on resolving any issues that appeared during testing. Assuming that they are still on track for a “holiday 2011” release time frame we might assume that the start of the Thanksgiving holiday season (on or about Nov 1st) or the Christmas season might be fair bets for a release date.
If they are going to do it before calendar year 2011 ends, and if they are going to do it on a Tuesday then that means that you will need to take the following days off from work in November and December just to be safe. 🙂
November Tuesdays are: the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22, 29th
December Tuesdays are: 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th
So if you schedule those days off then you should be able to be around when release hits!
Sorry I have to go call my boss now, talk at you later. 🙂
