But EA, LucasArts and BioWare has made what could be a fatal mistake. There will be a cutoff of initial sales. This is primarily because of server limitations but turning away paying customers is always a bad idea.
In addition the game will be limited geographically and throttled depending on your location. Even if you have pre-ordered there is no guarantee that you will be allowed in initially.
The fact that EA is promoting this information is a money grab or perhaps they realize the game is set to bomb.
No official release date has been announced although it will be sometime in the fourth quarter of 2011.
