Electronic Arts has revealed that the release date for its anticipated MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic is "definitely tied" to data the company receives from ongoing beta testing.

"We're driving toward a date," EA's Frank Gibeau said in a recent interview. "But the very issue you raised is why we're not announcing a date yet because you want to make sure that these services can last a decade."

"We don't want to happen to us what happened to WoW and a couple of other services where in the first week there were queues trying to get on to the servers, the entire service crashed--we don't want that to happen," Gibeau told CVG, referencing technical issues that occurred when Blizzard launched World of Warcraft in 2004.

A "great launch" is essential, Gibeau says, noting that decisions on where to focus game polish comes from the feedback provided by testers.

"The other thing is, the technology of standing these things up and then getting all the server farms to work together, talk to one another, store character records... it's extraordinarily complex and so we want a very stable experience."

Gibeau says that EA is "totally focused" on quality, "so whatever the beta test tells us is what will be the determining variable on when we will hit."

Star Wars: The Old Republic launching Dec. 20, starts at $15 per month

After many galactic ages, Electronic Arts has finally announced a release date for Star Wars: The Old Republic, and it's not too far, far away. The long-awaited MMO will officially launch later this year on December 20 in North America and on December 22 in Europe.

In addition to the release date, the game's pricing structure has also been revealed. The subscription options should look very familiar to World of Warcraft vets. After the free month that comes with the game, plans start at $15 for a single month, $42 for three months or $78 for six months. Oh, and if you want early access, there's still time to pre-order, of course.

Thankfully, there's also still time to come up with an excuse for skipping out on your family's holiday plans.

[Thanks to everyone that sent this in!]
