This is from SWTOR Central's live stream.
6.0 expansion is 100% confirmed, they have a date but won't tell us when.
They have confirmed it will not be "Knights of the ____" (but it sounds like the name is not 100% chosen either)

SWTOR Central: An expansion is coming, yes?

Eric Musco: Yes.

SWTOR Central: Confirmed. Yes? 6.0 Confirmed.

Eric Musco: Yes.

SWTOR Central: You got a date?

Eric Musco: No-

SWTOR Central: No?

Eric: [Well], yes, but we can't tell you.

SWTOR Central: Oh oh oh you do have a date!

Eric Musco: Do we have a date? Oh no. No not really (laughing)

SWTOR Central: Oh you have a date? Oh of course you have a date, you just can't tell me.

Eric Musco: To be clear, the next update after 5.9 is 5.10, not 6.0

Charles Boyd: Correct.

Eric Musco: So it's not-

SWTOR Central: Is that actually true?

Eric Musco: That is actually true!

SWTOR Central: That there's a 5.10?

Eric Musco: To be fair I think there might be a 5.9.1

Charles Boyd: Oh yeah, sorry.

Eric Musco: I'm trying to remember - whatever - but there will be a 5.10, it will not be the 6.0.

SWTOR Central: What is the last patch before the expansion? What is that going to be called?

Eric Musco: TBD? [To Be Decided] It depends on... if you saw the way that we do production plans-

Charles Boyd: 5-dot-three-thousand-seven-hundred-and-... (laughing)

Eric Musco: It's 5.something and it depends on like - somethings are in this update, and then it's like what if we made another update x weeks later where we put that out here... it's a moving thing

Charles Boyd: There's always a discussion - is it better to do a lot of small updates or a handful of biger updates, which would change that number drastically. It's up in the air.

Eric Musco: Something about patch 5.twenty-three... just kidding, just kidding!

SWTOR Central: For the next expansion, is the name going to be Knights of the dot dot dot...?

Eric Musco: It is not.

SWTOR Central: It is not!?

Charles Boyd: We haven't decided what it will be, but it will not be that.
Copied from the reddit link, from the live stream! Who else is excited? I am.
The focus seems to be Rep vs IMP.

  • there will at least be a 5.9.1 and 5.10 before 6.0 released
  • there will be an expansion (empire vs republic)
  • Jaesa coming back... "not a very long wait"
  • BWA thinking about a "polymorph" wz
  • sorc / sage improvement coming, whether utilities or buffing the class (in addition to multiple classes utilities changing)
  • pvp gear - expertise might come back (but it's a massive amount of work)
  • Ranked Season 9 ending midsummer. rewards still being decided
  • Serious internal conversations about ranked warzones - possible solution is ranked wz events
  • Might be able to kill Theron
  • New Stronghold coming
  • Malgus is probably dead
  • tracer missile animation coming back (just kidding)
Thanks LadyAdmiral for writing the transcript and Rion_Starkiller for the notes!

Not gonna lie, I'm 51% excited/49% mortified of more FUBAR. Still have to finish the 4.x content/story though, then 5.x. But still, on balance, I'm looking forward...

Unless I can stay with the Alliance and let the imps and pubs kill each other without having to get involved ... I'll wait for 7.0 so I can skip this plot too.

10 minutes! That's all it took for someone to complain about an expansion we know nothing of. Rofl!
