The folks over at 1-up.com posted an article predicting that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be delayed. 1-up.com predicts that we have to wait another year to play the game, and belive the game will out in 2012.
This is of course purely speculation, and not confirmed by BioWare, so don’t start a riot yet folks. Check out the full text about SWTOR below, and read the full article here
BioWare isn’t known for its delays. On the other hand, MMORPGs are hard to nail down as the genre constantly evolves, and most avoid launching in the crowded holiday release season. DC Universe Online opted to release in the relatively quiet month of January. Only World of Warcraft: Cataclysm had the clout last year to hit in December.
What we’ve seen so far has been promising, but the license and development costs make this a pricey proposition. If the game isn’t up to snuff this year, BioWare would probably rather risk a delay into a quiet 2012 than get burned by releasing a product with bugs still intact.
