Just checked my email and it was there: Anouncing the Release Date 22.12.2011 This is no Jedi mind trick. The most heavily anticipated MMO to date will launch on 22.12.2011. I assume this is the UK/Europe date because the main website says 20th. EDIT: Yes it is. Info below and here: BioWare and LucasArts are pleased to announce that Star Wars?: The Old Republic? will launch on December 20, 2011 in North America and on December 22, 2011 in the European Launch Territories! The announcement was first made by BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk during their keynote address at the 2011 Eurogamer Expo in London, England. Speaking to a packed room of press and fans alike, Dr. Muzyka acknowledged the weight of the moment and the patience of the fans. ?This is an incredible moment for everyone at BioWare and our partners at LucasArts who have dedicated their lives to build this extraordinary game. We appreciate the patience from the millions of fans who have been waiting for the game?s release.?
