“It was our plan to put out Game Update 5.5 in late September,” the team said, “but we have made the decision to move it into early October (currently 10/10). We did this to allow us more time to focus in on quality for our game updates to avoid some of the issues we had with 5.4.”
Once plans firm up on the studio’s end, it will be sharing the next game roadmap as well as what class balance changes are being planned for 5.5. And just in case your favorite companion hasn’t returned to the game, know that BioWare has heard players’ “great interest” in this feature and… is going to keep everyone waiting for more information. Good to know.
