Star Wars Galaxies delayed

LucasArts reveals that the much-anticipated online RPG set in the Star Wars universe will spend more time in beta testing and will not ship in April.

LucasArts has announced that Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided is entering the final phase of development, but will not ship on April 15 as planned. In addition, the third phase of the beta test, which will be more representative of the final game and will be opened to a select group of public testers, has been postponed. The new release date will be announced following the start of the third beta phase.

In a statement, LucasArts said, "We've received a good deal of constructive feedback and many positive suggestions that, if executed, will genuinely enhance game play for the hundreds of thousands of players who comprise the community." The statement also explained that the delay will allow the game's designers at Sony Online to get additional feedback from the testers and fan base.

Star Wars Galaxies is said to be in the final few months leading up to its launch. We'll have more details on the game soon. For more information, check out our previous coverage .
