First... i gotta ask. How often do Bioware/SWTOR update and upload up new episodes in the Galactic History section? Dont get me wrong,, i dont complaining. Just wondering. I eagerly wating for new episodes. But i also wanna know if the team behind this has a scheme about when to make and upload them? 1 per month? or one every second month.

And second. Just asking, not complaining. Are Bioware/SWTOR going to do any new cinematic videos like: Hope, Return, Deceived? :D Yeah those 3 are really awesome to look at. But are there coming new ones soon?

//Please, if you´re gonna answer. Stick to the subjects above. And also please, comments about how much you think the game sucks or wich class each video it belongs to or how much you think Bioware is working slow.. i dont care nor want to know. Please answer if you think you know, really know or read about it/these somewhere and share it.//

A Q&A here (I found it quoted here after doing a forum search for galactic history) indicates that they don't intend to fill in any more Timeline entries, but they have some (currently unscheduled) ideas for a future lore series.

From the Q&A:

Quote:
Pzljug: When are you guys going to finish the Timeline on the Holonet?

Stephen Reid (Senior Community Manager): When the Timeline series was begun we weren’t entirely sure how many timelines would be needed to detail relevant backstory for The Old Republic and left ‘blank spaces’ on the Timeline that, we thought, would all be filled in with Timeline entries. Ultimately, we feel we’ve detailed all the relevant backstory required, so no more Timeline entries going back into earlier history are planned. However, we know how much players enjoyed the lore details, style and presentation of Timelines, so we’re planning to continue that with a different series (currently unscheduled!) which will detail other aspects of the lore of The Old Republic.

dang disappointing, but thank you at least for the timelines that you did as they were very entertaining. I was looking so forward to the rest that I saw up there.

Cinematics are incredibly expensive to make, so I doubt we will see any more. Would be cool, but I would rather that money go into improving the game.

I would love if they were to do a bit of both with money that they make, half of it goes to improving the game and the other half goes to doing cinematics seems like a good compromise :-)
