BioWare on Analyst Criticism: Old Republic "Progressing Well"

A day after being heavily criticized by analyst firm Cowen and Company, which saw Star Wars: The Old Republic as "highly derivative" of World of Warcraft and predicted that it would be delayed to 2012, BioWare saw fit to respond through the words of its "doctors" Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk to Eurogamer, who argued that the developer is "progressing well" with the Star Wars MMO.
"Things are tracking well," CEO Ray Muzyka told Eurogamer. "We're progressing well. The fact we're showing it hands-on on the show floor is an indication of our confidence in the quality. We're getting a lot of positive feedback on that.

"We know how critical it is to launch as a solid game and then have really high quality service afterwards, too.

"We have plans to do follow-on content and things that'll keep our players engaged and active for years to come."
