Actually I think 2010 is more likely. It seems useless for them to have shown 'the' trailer if the game is more than a year away. They've also hinted that they don't plan to be at next year's E3.

I would also disagree with someone who said full voice over was evolutionary and not revolutionary. Its revolutionary. Not because of the sheer volume of voice-over, but because of the multiplayer dialogue which has never been done before, and the fact that every player character speaks as well as NPCs. Far, far ahead of the first 20 levels of Age of Conan.

Sure, a lot of it is the same, but there are tidbits here and there that reveal more about the game, like there being Crafting, Auction houses, Guilds.
So please, if you do not want to read them because they all contain the "same fluff", then please do like feel like you are privileged enough to comment on the game.

I think that we'll see this game in 2010... Mid-2010 As other posters have said, Bioware is using a third party engine etc. and the game seems to be pretty far along.

Mid 2010 will be before the next WOW Xpac most likely too - Blizzard always seem to take longer than they think to deliver xpacs for WoW - also they need to do something special for the third xpac as the game is really starting to show it's age now - and updating the game play, graphics engine etc. will take time. But Blizzcon is soon, so we'll see...

Also 2011-12 will most likely see details of the next Blizzard MMO so TOR needs to land well before then... I can't see WoW lasting more than 100 levels (the game will just start to feel really old if it went on more than that) so I'd say that WoW will end in 2011 or so...

My gut feeling is 2010 for this game, can't wait...
