I think they said 8-10 weeks because they are taking 2 weeks off.

So end of January, mid-April seems to be when 2.6 will hit live.

In the past any links (and discussion) about datamined stuff has been deleted.

As far as 2.6, we will probably start hearing about it soon.

While it is not guaranteed and couple be different. We could be getting 2.6 along with F2P getting access to GS (it is 9 weeks after 2.5)

The new HB map would have been nice and I think the HC raiders are pretty set on the new NiM'es.

February 4 is when F2P have access to GSF and would be 9 weeks from 2.5. I am guessing that is when 2.6 (or 3.0) will be released with the official release of the new expansion with new Flashpoint, new area (as shown in the recent blog posts,) and the addition of Bombers to GSF along with other additions to GSF. We might also see some class balances and Quesh Huttball map.

January, mid-April? In my world February comes after January

First off, Happy New Year everyone! I am back in the office now from the holidays so we are right back to some yellow posts

Game Update 2.6 first and foremost will mark the launch of Galactic Starfighter! That will mean the introduction of:
  • The Gunship unlock available for F2P players.
  • A new Gunship variant.
  • Two Bomber variants!
  • ...and more! We will talk more about this next week.
Also, Game Update 2.6 will come with a few class changes, here is just an overview of some of what you will see:
  • A fairly significant DPS boost for Operatives/Scoundrels.
  • Mercenaries/Commandos will now have a skill to eliminate pushback on Tracer Missile/Grav Round and Power Shot/Charged Bolts.
  • Sorcerers/Sages will now have a skill to eliminate pushback on Lightning Strike and Force Lightning/Disturbance and Telekinetic Throw.
  • Mercenaries/Commandos can now cast Kolto Shell/Trauma Probe on more than one target at a time.
  • Mercenaries/Commandos can now use Rapid Shots/Hammer Shot on themselves while Combat Support Cylinder/Combat Support Cell are active.
As always, look for the 2.6 patch notes for a full list of all changes that are coming! That is just a preview of what is to come.
