We've been in interlude for long, long time.

When they have the stories written, dialog recorded and quests created. Of all the content the class stories are some of the most time consuming to make.

A year is a long time for that.

I asked that author of IA story on twitter, he said some of his works are not released yet, so maybe they got the story ready but have to wait to see how well F2P goes then make class chapters.

My guess, based on past games I've played, release patterns for this game, and wild guessing is early to mid next year, maybe even sooner. (probably late Jan, or mid december (pushing it) to hit the christmas market)

They were probably waiting for F2P so they could charge 29.99 per class arch.

Not when you consider all the other work they've been doing.

That being said, in my experience from other MMOs, a lot of the time (but not all), when content is released they are well into development of the next content upgrade. However, as someone else already said, EA/BioWare was probably waiting to see the results of F2P before committing resources into content (that might never be released).

Lastly, when you consider the SWTOR story arcs are more detailed than most other MMOs (voice acting, conversations, etc), if they keep that quality level, I do not expect new chapters for at least another year.

You must be new to EA/BioWare.

The consensus (used to be?) that the stories were written and dialogue recorded well into the future when the game released. Is this no longer the case? I haven't kept up with swtor news for the last few months, there may be more recent info that I'm not aware of.

In any case, the long awkward silence on my ships just keeps getting longer and awkwarder

I dont remember at all that the dialogue was recorded well in advanced, I dont remember seeing anything of that sort stated. I remember it was stated that the writing team is "years" ahead though.
