MTV Multiplayer reports that Sean Dahlberg, the community manger for TOR, has officially debunked the rumor on the game’s official forum. As of this moment, Star Wars: The Old Republic is only planned for release on PC.
I know many of you have heard this before but I’ll go ahead and reiterate it for those of you who may be news.
Star Wars: The Old Republic is currently being developed for the personal computer (PC) using the Microsoft® Windows® operating system. While we recognize that there are other operating systems and platforms available for games today, our development is specific to the personal computer using the Windows operating system at this time.
As to why The Old Republic is on that list, we have no idea but to allay any confusion, we should not be on there.
According to video game site VG247, the above image is an internal Xbox 360 release list for 2011. As you can see, The Old Republic is listed as “TBC–2011.”
We are already aware that The Old Republic will be released and launch sometime in early Spring for the PC, but it now seems the Xbox 360 may be getting Bioware’s first attempt at an MMORPG as well. Not only has Bioware put games for both the Xbox & PC out before (including Knights of the Old Republic), but Bioware/EA has stated that it is “definitely looking at the opportunity to bring the MMO experience to console, without question.”
Of course, this is only a rumor at the time, and we will try and get a comment from Bioware. We will, as always, let you know of the latest as we get it.
