Bonus companion coming in 1.3?

I saw this in a recent Q & A on update 1.3...
Quote:
BlazingShadow: Will we see the return of our favorite droid HK in some form?

Daniel: The great thing about droids is that they can be rebuilt. Of course, HK-47 wasn’t the only HK model ever built…
I think what they are talking about is a "bonus" companion that you can unlock on Hoth, as discussed on the IGN wiki, I guess they are finally adding him in 1.3...

Do you think this is true? If that's not what they're talking about, what ARE they talking about?

I like where this is going. Although on the downside half the population may start running around with HK-51.

With the orange customization skin, to make him look like HK-47.

I would rock an all black or gold HK. I really hope we get one.

The answer was a bit "vague". If you read the preamble to the question/answer post, you will see that they would be vague on anything NOT in 1.3.


Give me an MMO that I can visit and have fun! Where what I pay for is not going to those that play for free.

From the MCM interview:

Quote:
When are we going to see HK-51 droid?

A: Yes, we are not talking about that. I know there has being a few leaks on websites kind of hinting at it so I am going to hint at it as well and that will be all.

I really hope it's true. HK-47 was freaking hilarious.

I could counter this by saying that they didn't have to answer this question at all if it had nothing to do with 1.3
