Like I said it's possible since the expansion revolves around the Hutts and Varl was intended for 1.4. If you look at 1.3 in that link, you'll see a lot of it was split up and made into 1.3 to 1.6. That's why I'm certain Varl could be considered to be included with the expansion, but this is only based on presumption.
You have to realise that their team size has been drastically cut since launch. Of course things will take longer to release now.

Umm... You were saying?
When you can fit multiple TOR "planets" into one WoW continent, it kind of invalidates your argument.

To give you all a better idea of Makeb's scope, it's a planet of equal size to our larger planets and it contains a variety of areas sprawling mesas, underground caverns, garden estates, and more. It introduces faction-specific storylines, new Heroic missions and bosses, repeatable mission series, and new Datacrons! The 5 new levels will occupy players for a fair amount of time, and there's plenty of content to get you there (including a lot of stuff tucked away for the explorers out there). Keep in mind that this announcement is just the start as we approach Makeb's launch, you'll see more details about the content coming with Rise of the Hutt Cartel!

That does sound nice indeed. And i am most exited if there is actually some sandbox elements.
Also we really need a social area on Makeb with all the vendors we needso we can get away from fleet.

Not to mention you can't even purchase it with CC coins, just seems to me like another nickel and dime grab from your loyal fans.
Especially since it was suppose to be FREE anyway.

BW, if anything, are amazing LIARS.

Because each planet is so large right? Not composed of 4-5 small zones at all. Like all the other MMOS.
