Aiming for Q4 But...

Aiming for Q4 But... -

During last week's Citi 2011 Tech Conference, Electronic Arts CFO Eric Brown told the audience that Bioware and EA are targeting the last quarter of 2011 for the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic and that pre-order sales for the game are very strong.

But Brown also hedged the publishing giant's bets a bit with this statement:

EA's fiscal guidance takes into account a possible slip into first calendar quarter of 2012 (fiscal Q4) if needed, Brown said. "We have a date set internally [for calendar Q4], with a lot of assumptions around it," he said.

"We're not done until we're done. ... We're not going to know with enough certainty to publicly announce a release date," until later this month or sometime in October, said Brown of the MMO.
