Star Wars Galaxies Delayed

There's news in the Star Wars Galaxies Forums (thanks Jody and Star Wars Galaxies) from LucasArts producer Haden Blackman that beta three of the upcoming Star Wars MMORPG has been pushed back, and that the release of the game will no longer be on April 15. Here's the portion of the update described as the "'official' message:"
"Star Wars Galaxies is now entering the final phase of development, and everyone at LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment is pleased with the game's progress since the beta test program was initiated. We've received a good deal of constructive feedback and many positive suggestions that, if executed, will genuinely enhance gameplay for the hundreds of thousands of players who comprise the community.
To deliver the best possible massively multiplayer experience and ensure stability and breadth of content, LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment will delay the game's April 15 launch. This will enable us to invest more time into the beta program, and to solicit additional feedback from the tremendous fan base Star Wars Galaxies has already developed.

"In addition, we will not open phase three of the beta program until we feel the game is ready for a wider audience, which we anticipate will be within the next few weeks. A new release date for Star Wars Galaxies will be announced shortly after the beginning of beta three.

"We are sincerely grateful to the Star Wars Galaxies community for their tremendous support. We respectfully ask for their continued understanding and patience during these final few months leading up to the launch of what we believe will be one of the best MMOs to date."

I'm betting the folks at Turbine are breathing a sigh of relief knowing that they perhaps have a few more months of "episode" patches for AC2 to try to entice the current people to stay and perhaps attract those that cannot hold out much longer for SWG. I for one will make the switch upon release from AC2, but I am enjoying the game during the wait.
