UPDATE: On Friday Stephen Reid closed the target release date thread started by Sean Dahlberg back in October 2008. In that thread Sean announced Spring 2011 as the target release date. Stephen directed readers to his new post regarding BioWare’s release date. The official release window is no longer “Spring 2011,” but “this year after the end of EA’s fiscal 2011.” Hmmmmm……
Yesterday’s quarterly meeting did not provide any new insight into BioWare’s stated target release date of Spring 2011. EA CFO Eric Brown told callers that the game would ship “calendar 2011, but after the close of fiscal ’11,” which is a bigger window (April 2011-December 2011) than what the fans have been hearing. This has led to some debate about whether these release date statements contradict each other. Although we were disappointed that rumors of pushback were neither confirmed nor denied, we did enjoy some of the lighter moments such as the discussion on lightsabers vs. swords.
