Speculation is fun. I honestly don't know what you two are talking about. "Hope for the best, be prepared for the worst" is a more healthy mindset.
You think they might doing another MMO ? There are these rumours about that new Old Republic game that no one knows what's it going to be....

The only salvation I see for this game is moving on to SWTOR 2 or something similar. I doubt they will update the engine of a 10 year old game, but who knows. We shall see... If they already said they have plansfor 2021 that is good news that something is going to happen.

Yup.

Just another "hey we have great things in the future; but please ignore how many times we have promised that in the past, and failed to deliver." post.

Bioware Austin, especially the Lead Producer and Community Manager need to start to grasp a very simple basic principle of good business practice: "talking the talk" is fine for getting people interested in your product; but "walking the walk" is what keeps them as paying customers.

Bioware's "hey we have great things lined up for the future" posts are talking-the-talk.
Unfortunately when it comes to walking-the-walk all we get is Tier 11 Crafting, and year and years of unfixed bugs.

And I also notice that once again they stop talking to us. It's simple, Mr Musco, Mr Kanneg, et al, if you actually bother to communicate with us, even if it's not always what I want to hear, I'm less likely to be a flaming jerk because at least there is an open and honest communication.

I fail to see how Mr Musco was so overworked he needed help when this community is so atrociously managed.

Plus one for the "where is Zenith" queue/pitchfork protest. He's an underrated companion and the only part of the Consular story I really liked. I always said he should have been a romance option from day one (especially for neutral/DS consulars) so I hope when he does return, they've allowed this (and we get to find out his real name).* Charles did say 6.2 would be crazy! And whilst I'm on the subject of crazy, another of my crazy theories:

I have hope that the list of incoming fixes is so long that the patch notes will require a separate huge bug fix appendix & Lord P'tach Musco is currently building up the stamina to write them.*

Oh i agree that speculation is fun. But most people don't know how to control their expectations and it ends up with a wave of negativity, wich in turn is not fun at all.

First story update in May? Jesus it never moved at a slower pace than nowadays. And the funniest part is that the May update will mostly concern an epilogue to an older already concluded KOTFEET story lol.

2021 story expansion better be something new, grand and GOOD 'cause right not SWTOR is at its most boring and spare period in storytelling ever...

All of the yellow posts in this thread did nothing to convince me there are any actual major plans for the game. On the contrary. ALL kind of content (story, Ops, WZ) looks to be fewer and fewer in quantity

We call 1 minute cutscenes actual story updates now? Yeah no. Certinately not for a game that used to have EIGHT unique 10+ hours class stories at launch (on top of unique planetary stories and others), or even montly 1+ hour story chapters just a few years ago. It's insuting to this game's history.

  • Hi
  • SWTOR will be around for years to come (cuz we’re planning to release something big for our 10th anniversary)
  • Onslaught continues to be a lot of fun, but we need to start providing updates – so on Feb 11th, we’ll release 6.1 (but that’s only one of many in 2020).
  • Will get you more details about upcoming releases
  • Hope to see you at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA

😊

But will SWTOR be around for years to come?

If the amount of daily grind NPC crowd control abilities aren't reduced to near nothing, it doesn't matter what else is done. I won't be paying anymore.
