A month ago in the earnings PR they said "second half 2011". In the conference call they said second half wasn't definite, maybe fiscal Q4, but for sure this FY. Today in their E3 games list PR every game has a release month or quarter except for SWTOR which says, "TBD".
i went into a few GameStop stores to ask about they they all have '2012' listed in their databases... so i think there is a solid chance it could be released in the new year. of course bringing that forward would be a positive really, but I don't think a January 2012 release is in anyway bad or negative.
