Has there been any announcement from BioWare how SGR will be implemented? From browsing this thread I got the impression it was all fan-speculation/wishing so far...

Has anyone else taken a look at the things they'll be talking about at the San Diego Comic-Con?

While I'm sure we'll get all kinds of news, one thing in particular caught my eye: the "Meet the Companions of SW:TOR" panel. Complete with the premiere of a "brand new video". Call me crazy, but wouldn't a major discussion about companions be the perfect place to debut new companion romances? SGRs included, obviously.

No way to know before it happens, but SDCC is next weekend. We shall see.

I've been seeing a **** ton of talk about companions recently and Kelly Hu claimed on her twitter she had returned to Star Wars (She voiced Visas Marr) , whether or not that is the Old Republic is not a question where I have an answer.

Kelly Hu. <3

She could be going to work on the TCW series, but I would love to hear her voice in TOR.

Been in luv with her since she was on Nash Bridges way back in the day.

It has been months since we last hear something about SGRA: wouldn't be better to make some noise again? Maybe they can understandt that new romance/companion relation possibilities mean more gameplay => game longevity => the people keep paying the sub.

And besides, they promised Sgra almost one year ago, before the launch itself, and at present time we don't have even an hunch about it.

I just realized that by implementing SGR options you could get into a situation with a bi warrior where Malavai, pierce, Vette, and jaesa find out youve been romancing the other 3. I was gonna role a twilek to have a romance with vette but if bioware introduces SGR i will flirt with all 4.

P.S sorry broonmark it looks like cross species relationships with non near humans arent coming

That's the reason why I (and other ppl) think that they're going to add new specifically companions for SGRA: the point is that all of that are speculations, nothing more, because BW has not given any info about.

I understand why you think that. The original announcement, nearly a year ago, seemed to suggest SGRs would be with new companions. However, at the guild summit, BioWare said they knew what companions they would do SGRs with, companions that it made sense for, and said they wouldn't tell us who. While this doesn't outright say SGRs will be with current companions, it implies it, since I doubt they would say they wouldn't tell us who the companions were if we didn't already know those companions. Please take a look at the guild summit video for that, I linked it in a post I made on the first page of this thread.

Otherwise, they could have said something like "You can have a same-gender relationship with Jek'ula!" and left us all wondering who the frack Jek'ula was.

As for not getting any new info, yeah, I think we're all tired of hearing nothing. But also at the guild summit, BW was very specific in saying they would talk about SGRs when they were done. On one hand, this makes sense, as they won't want to say someone is an SGR option and then have that not work out. After the ranked PvP problem, I can see why they're handling new features that way.

On the other hand, throw us a frickin' bone, would you, BW?
