Well it would be nice, but I don't EVER expect a new class. The story is too interwoven to into the 8 to try to shoehorn in another class. The biggest strength of this game is also it's greatest weakness. The story. It inexorably locked into the pacing and direction of this grand vision. And like all stories it will end. Hopefully with some grand conclusion, but it will end. And it will end when and where the writers dictate.

The one thing they failed to understand is that the SW universe is a sandbox. People want to make an impact on that universe, but with a static storyline universe, that can't happen. SWTOR is more akin to the "Chose your own adventure" books some of us read as children. In reality, you are taken down a set course to a conclusion, no real creativity in it. And you really aren't "chosing your own adventure" you are just able to lean to one side or another on THEIR rollercoaster.

Hey don't get me wrong, I loved my "chose your own adventure" books. I love this game. But taken as it is, it is static and locked into a staid course. No jumping the rails or changing tracks, it's going to the station one way or another. It would truly be a jaw dropping day if they ever released a new class. I don't foresee that happening. As for adding in an independant group, NEVER.

btw, it's species. not race.
It's amazing how loud a dollar can be.
