It was announced yesterday that a new raid is to be released in SW: Galaxy of Heroes featuring the Sith Triumvirate Darth Traya, Darth Sion, Darth Nihilus. Typically, SWGOH will make these characters collectible, along with their opposing light side/ dark side counterparts.

If other EA games are reaching into the Old Republic "stash," how likely are we to see other SW EA games using other Old Republic era characters, concepts, and plot lines? And what does this mean for SWTOR? Is EA merely milking the assets of KOTOR, KOTOR2, and SWTOR? Or are we likely to see further expansion into the Old Republic era by EA?

Most importantly, what does this mean for SWTOR and 6.0?

It means you need to wait and find out, like everyone else has already said.

Stash stolen long time ago. EA put Star Wars outfits in "The Sims 4" years ago.

Admittedly, though, the outfits were from the movies, not TOR.
Still.

How incredibly insightful. I bet you're a hit at parties.

Yeah, but typically isn't it just some appearance stuff? This is an actual raid, and seems like a theme that they will borrow from for the next several months. (speculation)

Nothing. Yes. Unlikely.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Is Galaxy of Heroes canon?
Bioware offers a friend referal system which gives referred players a couple of goodies (incl. 7 free days of sub and a neat free inventory slot for every character) and referring players some little shinies and cartel coins.
I would be happy if you choose my referral link to grab your free goodies.

Not exactly milking so much as giving the GoH players characters they have been asking for years to be out into the game. We already have Nilius, Sith Assasin, HK and Sith Trooper in there. Revan is one of the most asked for chars - still not in but people are hopeful it will happen eventually.
