Cross-faction guilds - when can we expect them?

During one of the cantina tours, someone asked Bioware about cross-faction chat and got a reply that it would be part of cross-faction guilds.

Well, when could we expect to see this happen? 3.0? Sometime at the end of 2014? Is it in any developement stage or just on the 'wall of crazy' for now? It sure would improve social/communication aspect of the game greately for tons of guilds with versions on each side so I can't wait to see this implemented as soon as possible

Cross-faction chat channels: Only for guild chat, No ETA (this was the closest to an affirmative. He stressed no ETA, but said you can credit him saying this is something coming)

The problem is.. The link you gave us doesn't support that remark..

That is the only comment in your link that I can find on the issue of cross server.. So I would be interested to see an actual quote or something that supports your claim..

Cross-faction chat and guilds is entirely different thing than cross servers stuff..

It's not going to happen from the looks of things. So you might wait a while.
