The last roadmap was 10/2. Since these are supposed to be quarterly that means the next one is due in a week or so. I doubt that's gonna happen because holidays. 50/50 we get a roadmap by 1/14/18 - but BW may not be ready to talk about 6.0 or anything past the next fp.

Musco said on the stream that was never announced on here that they will have a roadmap in early January unless Keith has something special up his sleeve that Musco doesn't know about.

I wonder if it will be early January or be pushed back and back till the roadmap comes out a week before the first update.

I think everyone could do with something to look forward to in the game. The guys at Elder Scrolls online have laid out their plan for 2018 with 4 content updates through the year. Now the first one being a return to Skyrim for more dungeons not really my thing but that is how you go into the holiday week. Other than knowing Andronikos is going to return in the next update we have nothing. Supposedly VO is done 6 months in advance so we should know the next next few companions that are being returned early next year as the VO is already done. Unless its going to be one companion for the first half of 2018.

Just to Hazzard a guess I could probably write it for them.

Generic Back Slapping about how well 2017 went, ignoring the treatment of west coast players and making a joke about only getting 3 operation bosses out. Something about how Yavin is the best warzone despite feeling strangely familiar to Alderaan and how passionate people have been about the story arc.

Update 5.7 Brings with it the 4th Operation boss, who despite each of the previous ones being the most fun this was is also the most fun and engaging. It also has an Alliance Alert to get Andronikos back, minimal interaction, minimal back story, make sure you have played the SI story so you know his a pirate.

Update 5.8 Brings the final Flashpoint in the 'Alliance Traitor' Story Arc we are of to (insert planet of choice sadly mine is Yavin 4) where there will be a bunch of boss mobs to kill as we track the traitor across the planet with a cut scene at the end drawing it to a conclusion. The conclusion will of course leave no one happy as we will see massive plot holes and leaps of logic.

Update 5.9 The final Operation boss will be launched and some quality of life improvements. This operation boss will also be the most fun ever and offer a real challenge.

Then there will be some vague notion about companions, story and multiplayer aspects of the game, despite most of 2017 having been more about instanced co-op play than open world massive multiplayer content. Then a sign of saying looking forward to the feedback, despite it seeming no feed back from the Fall Roadmap being given any consideration.

I cant tell if I should be happy or sad about the merge... On one end it means more players and probably more server events but it also seems kind of a waste of time considering there isn't much content coming out in the process

I'm really hoping getting the merge done and polishing up GC to what many would consider an acceptable level is all done and they can start focusing more on content. They originally wanted to have all five Gods released by now, but I think having to go back and tweak GC so many times, then prepare to merge the servers with minimal impact on players took a lot of resources that otherwise may have gone into game play. We'll probably still see another FP or two to finish off the current storyline, and the two Gods still released one at a time, but I'm holding out hope that there will be a 6.0 release in 2018 (preferably in spring, probably in winter), and that it will be good.

In the meantime tho, I'm still having a lot of fun running the latest op in different roles and with different people. It really is a fun one, with mechanics that matter, which is what I like the most in my operations. It'll keep me entertained for a while. Shame about the story-only players, but they digest their content so quickly anyway. . .

Waiting BW is still in hibernation. They still have to sleep off their intoxication.

It's 2018, where is an roadmap related to 2018? Roadmaps are supposed to be out months in advance of the content but we literally have no idea what to expect for our subscription fees anymore.

Not only we have no idea, they also have no idea what they are doing. Is there anyone left to provide the game with new stuff, i think not so.

Ist a shame what they are doing with the great potential Star Wars could be.

6 Years and no really great Add-On, only small DLCs - there is no hope more for that game.
Möge die Macht mit Euch sein
