It seems that Paul Darrow, 70′s sci-fi actor of Blake’s 7 fame and voice of Grand Moff Tarkin in a few Star Wars games, let it slip to ShadowLocked.com that Star Wars: The Old Republic is coming out by Christmas.
Paul Darrow said he recently did more voice-over work for Lucas about a month ago stating:
Anyway, I’m a Sith, and they told me it’s coming out at Christmas. I was just doing some tops and tails, because I had recorded it about a year ago. I’m your guide – a Sith warrior.
It seems the interviewer didn’t even realize that what he just heard was huge news in the MMO gaming world and didn’t even bother asking a follow up question.
We’ll try to get a response from Bioware, so nothing is confirmed, but as far as rumors go, that’s pretty solid.
