Firstly, lukeisjedi never claimed 'major' that was KendraP. Second, while lukeisjedi is wrong in the naming convention, by calling them expansions, the source for two 'expansions' (which are just updates) this year are the devs themselves. During the last stream and in the post-stream follow-up it was stated that they merged update 6.2, which would have been the conclusion to Kira's, Scourge's, and Satele's Weekend at Tenebrae's, with update 6.3, which would have been a new story focused flashpoint involving Mandalorians. This combined 6.2 update will come later in the year, and their own wording during the stream was that we would be getting two story updates in one.

True, an update is not an expansion. An expansion would be an integer increase from 6.x to 7.x; something we are not likely to see until next year at the absolute earliest. So lukeisjedi is wrong for calling them expansions, but not wrong about us getting two story updates this year in the form of a merged 6.2 update (allegedly since it has not actually happened yet, but that is the plan).

6.2 - Echoes of Vengeance
  • Two story updates in one!
  • Continuation of Kira/Scourge/Satele storyline
    • Locate the missing ship and uncover the truth of its disappearance
  • New Flashpoint
    • Face new enemies and old as conflict erupts among the Mandalorians.
  • Showed off a few screenshots/concept for the new story content.

As I pointed out on Discord, the job opening could just be to replace a current employee who left, or is leaving, for whatever reason. It doesn't necessarily indicate any 'expansion' to the work force.

Hey! don't knock it! That's about 19 seconds a day of fresh new content.* - Probably not even as long as it takes to boot the computer and load the game and then log off.

*providing you don't use rocket-boots to spin through the inside areas, spacebar through the cutscenes, use stealth to bypass encounters and put your comp on DPS to tear down the mobs at double rate. And play through one faction and take it as read the other is pretty much the same all over again.



ohh! I'm sounding a bit like SteveTheCynic - bless him!

And oh my goodness we're getting a whole two minor updates with snippets that might be a whole 20 minutes long in them too! Isn't that just absolutely amazing! (/sarcasm)
