MMO title Star Wars: The Old republic could arrive in September after all, according to ShopTo.

Online UK retailer ShopTo has given upcoming EA MMO title Star Wars: The Old Republic a September 9th release date in the UK according to a recent update.

Back in january MCV learnt that EA executives were at the time anticipating a September release for the long-awaited game much to the irritation of BioWare fans who let MCV know of their displeasure in the comments section.

However, in recent months that release date has begun to look less certain.

Despite missing its proposed Q2 2011 release date, as predicted by MCV, the game was recently removed from EA's release schedule prompting fears that it may miss 2011 entirely.

The official line from EA, however, is that the game will arrive some time in calendar 2011.

Same outdated bull we've heard from every retailer and games news agency alike since the game was announced. Infact i was able to preorder my copy over a year ago for November '10 then January 2011(i didnt). Basicly this is retailers creaming their loads too early and the news group half reading the dev tracker on the official forums and trying to attract hits by speculating even more on the release date of the game.

As of the *latest* dev post by Stephen Reid,

Star Wars: The Old Republic is expected to launch in the second half of 2011. Information on the release date and pre-order programs will be released as it becomes available.

This is just a snippet of what he said but this is the official view and anything else by anyone is just horse shit to get hits and sales. Not trying to say sept or sept9th for that matter is not the realease date but basicly i call a big load of bullshit.
