Wait, what’s that you say? Another “probable release date” rumor is spreading like wildfire through the SWTOR forums? Well then by golly, we need to spring to action and report on this!
The “report” that’s making the rounds currently goes a little something like this:
We are officially moving the expected Star Wars launch from September to November. PopCap is not the key to getting ERTS right. We like this acquisition, but this is not going to make or break your ERTS trade this year. The success of Star Wars and Battlefield, on the other hand, will. All eyes now shift to them.
So aside from sounding like it was ripped straight out of a Nostradamus quatrain, what does this mean?
Well for starters, this was put out on Barron’s via Pacific Crest, an investment/research firm. Some folks are thinking that this came straight from EA/BioWare, and this is not the case. The “we” here in question is Pacific Crest. So this is essentially their best guess, based on other factors (such as EA’s acquisition of PopCap).
November sounds like a reasonable guess, but it’s still just that. I don’t think we’ll be seeing a release date announcement coming out of Comic Con next week either. I imagine the chances of hearing anything out of Gamescom are still pretty slim, but I’m kind of holding out hope that we’ll hear something by Pax Prime. At any rate, it seems like we have a ways to go before the train starts to move…
We’ve followed this thing for a long time so far, almost three years now? Knowing that we’re potentially at the finish line, are you starting to get antsy?
