Yes, the release date window is STILL for between “now and December” or if you want to get “more official” it is still for the second half of 2011. That is official. If you don’t believe it, well, that’s your problem. The window has not changed.
And no, the January window is not official. January is not “the second half of 2011”. January is an investor talking and investors don’t make the decisions. EA, Bioware and George Lucas make the decisions. If anyone or any site has told you differently, they are lying and don’t know what they’re talking about.
No, no release date will be given during E3. Stephen Reid has confirmed this officially on the official forums. I’ve linked it once on this site and I won’t go searching for the link to the actual post again.
Those of us who follow the game religiously and have a wide array of information available to us and are able to make logical assertions believe that the game will release around November. Some believe in September. These are both very logical guesses. That’s the best date you’re going to get for now and that information is not official. It’s a guess.
There is no leaked information out there. The date has not even been decided by Bioware yet. I can pretty much guarantee you that. According to developers the game is finished – yes that is official – as I’ve heard it from multiple developers. That is not to say that they aren’t still changing plenty of things, removing things they don’t like and adding new things. They are still beta testing and for all we know that could last until December.
