Star Wars: The Old Republic nears completion

BBC has an interesting interview with Greg Zeschuk from Bioware. We don’t get an exact release date, but it seems like spring 2011 is still the goal. The interview mostly made for people that are new to the MMORPG scene, but it is till an interesting read.

The massive multiplayer online role-play game (MMORPG) Star Wars: The Old Republic is nearing completion.

While the Canadian developer BioWare would not be drawn on an exact date, it said that spring 2011 “was not unrealistic””.

“”It’s getting closer, it’s coming down the pipe,” the firm’s founder Greg Zeschuk told BBC News.
At present the MMORPG market is dominated by World of Warcraft, which boasts more than 10m players.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is set 4,000 years before the events in the movies, which gave the developers almost a free hand in creating a unique persistent Star Wars universe.
“The only requirement Lucas Arts gave us when developing the game was not to blow up any planets that appear in the movies,” said Mr Zeschuk.
