The breaking news from EuroGamer Expo is that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be released December 20th. The day before, when we spoke to Stephen Reid, BioWare’s Senior Online Community Manager, the release date was still Quarter 4, 2011, as you can see in our interview below.

The ‘big thing’ we got from the interview is that the European beta test is finally about to begin, albeit “soon,” though in a post-interview chat Stephen really did suggest that “soon” meant soon, and was not a general remark. Aside from talk of release dates, betas and delays, Stephen took time to run through the Player Versus Player demo that people could go hands-on with at the show, and spoke of the game’s scalability, allowing those with older systems to enjoy the game also.
