I recall them saying hard mode would be in the game(which it is-Black Talon has hard mode), I don't recall them guaranteeing every flashpoint would have hard mode by the 2nd day of "official launch". (Which today is only the 2nd day of the game being officially released) If you can provide it in writing then I'll back off.
Can also be found directly by scrolling down through the SWTOR Facebook page until you get to the Q&A's with Daniel Erickson on October 16.
'A.j. Artiles: Will there be a "hardcore" difficulty for Flashpoints?
Daniel: Yes, all of the 15 announced flashpoints are also playable at end game with harder difficulty modes and end game gear.'
Key word: All 15.
We're missing 6.
