First up, PTS will be opening back up soon. We are planning to go live before the end of the month. This phase will feature all of the R-4 Anomaly Operation and the Manaan Daily Area effectively letting you all see what will be included in 7.1. As always, when PTS is up, I will post all the relevant threads in the PTS sub-forums so you are able to leave feedback.

Second, this will be the final PTS phase for 7.1. Once PTS closes, the team will be working away on polishing the content you all saw. All that said, we can confirm that 7.1 is targeted for mid-summer!

Lastly for this post, wanted to let you all know that when we get closer to launch for this game update, we will be hosting a livestream focusing on the content of 7.1.

So stay tuned for the PTS posts! And of course, if any of the above changes, I will be letting you all know.

Hi everyone,

I have a small update on 7.1 PTS. The team ran into a couple of blockers when they tested the build late last week so PTS was not ready to go live. I just got out of the check in meeting, and this is where we stand today.

We will be going through the build today and verifying that the blockers are gone so everything is playable. Currently, we are targeting to deploy the build this week. As always, if that schedule shifts, I will be informing you all.

Thanks!

I would bet it will not be until June, since they were involved in the Star Wars Convention, and they "couldn't" do it then. Then it will take them 3-4 months to actually release the content, if we are lucky.

There is a saying "No news is good news"...well its true but with SWTOR I still like bad news over no news.

Thanks for the update Jackie

Appreciate the information. Now we just need to get EA/BioWare to, y'know, properly staff y'all and make it so you can do things.
Peace is a lie.

What could've possibly happened in two weeks that you can't meet this deadline. It's not even content! Literally just turn the PTS on and excuse the bugs for being a PTS thing, this means that the operation is in such a bad state they couldn't even be on PTS.

To even have the audacity to announce a new operation with 7.0 - which was supposed to launch SIX MONTHS ago, six months - there is no possible way you actually thought this deadline of December was doable. Maybe you didn't have a choice because higher ups decided it, but then to announce the delay one week before release - why so late? To scam people out of sub money! Everybody knows it's true, I respect it but only because it's so shameless.

Honestly, showing up to the celebration thing was such a slap in the face. Celebrate what? No content? Dropping sub numbers? Listening to feedback? Balancing classes? It's whatever, how can you even expect people to still show up to the PTS, your teams can't even be bothered removing the WIP logo anymore - it's just the live version with higher ping, maybe two animations are missing so you have to add the reskinned ones and baboom releasable patch.

Just be honest, say you can't deliver that ""quickly"". I know this is not jackies fault and not anyones in particular - but honestly I don't care anymore, deliver content - working content. It is NOT too much expected to get content SIX months after the original release.

None of this is a good sign. The Bioware Austin team must be in some serious trouble if it takes this long to fix a major expansion. Either EA truly does not care and will not invest in this game further. Or they are planning to shut Swtor down in a year or less.

I think it sums it up, they will only be able to keep this one going for so long, it's sad because this game has/had great potential for years to come. I just don't see it going for much longer.
