2011 Release Date Confirmed; Hands-on Testing This Year!

Star Wars: The Old Republic Community Manager Sean “Ashen Temper” Dahlberg has now confirmed the 2011 release date we reported on yesterday in an announcement made to the official Star Wars: The Old Republic forums. With the genie essentially out of the bottle due to yet another slip by EA’s CEO John Riccitiello this comes as no surprise to us.

Additionally, Sean mentions that while the game will be launching in 2011, that this year will still see some significant developments fans of the game can look forward to, including the first hands-on testing of the game!
