I don't get the secrecy.. Just revealing what it is will do more good than harm. Are they worried EVE or STO will steal their idea, especially if they come out and say something like "the SPP will feature full 3D space combat similar to freelancer or galaxies".

Although I love the idea of entertaining space combat in this game. I'm not holding my breath, especially since so called WARzones are skirmishes between 16 people..

Because let's say they will tell you something about it. Like oh you will get non-rail space pvp combat and you will be able to board enemy frigates blah blah blah, then you will expect these things. Then it will turn out that it's not working the way they wanted or something and they will scrap the idea, then everyone will complain how "BioWare is not keeping promises again". So they are not gonna say or promise anything about it until they are sure they can do it and to avoid useless whining on forums.

If they say something, they will be acused of lieing and deceiving if they choose to change anything on the design or delay the release. Therefore we get nothing.

You can thank the whinners, they kicked the devs out of the forums (like the above poster ^^).

At the last live chat this came up and they mentioned it is still in production and they even played with it. That tells me all I need to know. BW, DO NOT answer this question.
You're damned if you do, and you're damned if you don't. The safe bet is look for this sometime next fall. Until then, I wouldn't expect any new news.

Thank you for digging into it for us Allison, glad to hear it's still alive and being worked on. Exciting indeed.

Just because Bioware says the "super secret space project" is in development doesn't mean it is.

Look back at the guild summit in spring of 2012, or at the numerous promises from the pre-launch era. The "SSSP" is one such project discussed back in 2011! There is no iteration of the word "soon" that could possibly involve a multiple year wait when you are billed monthly. There is also no iteration of the phrase "new gear" that can refer to armor sets available in beta that were removed just before launch.

Exactly.. you will always get the detractors and whiners on the forums and the tin foil crowd. These are the people that are never satisfied and are always pessimistic no matter what is showed to them.

Couldn't agree more!

I am excited for the SSSP (love the name btw ), and it's also great that we got reply from Allison - it seems like we are being heard after all. Keep up the good work!

I really hope for 2013 to be great for TOR and full of quality updates.
