On the heels of Star Wars: The Old Republic's release in North American and European Territories, community manager Stephen Reid took to the SWTOR.com boards to announce the launch window for fans in Australia and New Zealand.
"We can confirm that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be launching in Australia and New Zealand in the spring of 2012.
Right now we are targeting March 1st, but that could change as our number one priority is making sure that customers have a great service to play on.
For those of you who may have already imported the game, we will be investigating solutions to allow you to continue to play on a local server once they come online in March.
EDIT: As pointed out, southern hemisphere seasons are reversed! When we say 'Spring' you can substitute 'Q1/Q2 2012'. Apologies for that."
We hope this comes as good news to our friends in Australia and New Zealand. The wait may be a bit longer but at least now there's a light at the end of the TOR tunnel.
