After John Riccitiello's "slip" on EA's conference call, BioWare confirmed that the "major MMO" is in fact Star Wars: The Old Republic, as predicted. The release date was confirmed by BioWare's Sean Dahlberg, who wrote the following on the official forum:

"While we have not announced a specific date, we can confirm that we are targeting a spring 2011 release for Star Wars: The Old Republic." He added "We've got a lot of exciting updates and reveals planned throughout 2010, including the first-ever hands-on testing for the game. It's not too late to sign up to be a game tester, so go to and sign up today."

"We can't wait to share more about the game with you as we progress through the year, so make sure you stay tuned to the official website for details."
