Star Wars: The Old Republic Won't Launch "Unless It's Solid"

The folks at Eurogamer had the chance to chat with one of BioWare's "doctors", Greg Zeschuk, at GamesCom last week and come back with some tidbits on the developer's upcoming MMO set in the Star Wars universe. BioWare's co-founder didn't add anything mindblowing to what we already know, but I suppose it could be interesting for people following the title:
He said: "We're doing our very best to get it out as fast as we can. With a game like this, getting it all right, getting all the server stuff right is just as important as getting the game right."

Seeking to ease fears that the game would slip into 2012, he added: "We're trying, as fast as we can. That's the reality. It's literally live right now; we've been doing a lot of testing with a lot of people behind the scenes.

"At any one time there are thousands of people playing the game. Starting next month [when public beta weekends are scheduled] we're really going to start expanding that testing cycle."


"Our job is really simple: making sure it's great when it comes out. We're going to do the right thing for the fans, for the product. It's a big deal but we're doing our very best to get it out as fast as we can."
