Now this news may have some serious implications. As anyone who has been following this game knows, Bioware has been very secretive about the release date for this game. However, Stephen Reid, the lead writer for the game has stated that the release of the release date would be preempted by some information. Could this be the start of the information train that leads to the release date? I think so, and so do many others. I am expecting a release date to be discussed in the next few weeks, or a month at the most. Perhaps we will even get some information from Comic-Con.
