Star Wars: The Old Republic bumps Update 5.5 to October

Don’t hold your breath waiting for Star Wars: The Old Republic to rock your September. BioWare revealed on the forums today that it is pushing the next major patch, Update 5.5, to early October.

“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.

Awww… Vette using Spewie, something she can’t actually do outside of cutscenes because she can’t use autocannons…

A good example of how things “work” in SWTOR.

Restricted weapons/armor skills are so passe imho. Why not let characters use anything but with appropriate penalties or maybe changed skills.

Indeed, especially with armor effectively doing nothing on them now other than cosmetic looks

This is very disappointing, I wonder if the new Op bosses will come out by the end of this year or will it carry over to the next. Regardless, I don’t know what happened to this game. I loved SWTOR, but the last year or two has seen drastic population decreases on all the servers (90 on pub side fleet on Harbinger during prime time). Grind of the same content we have has for 3-5 years now. I wonder how much longer this game will last.

It looks like I was wrong again. I thought SWTOR would get a new “expansion” out this year. Annual expansions are good and why in the world would you not want to ride the updraft of the upcoming movie.

5.5 in October makes that even less likely.

I was hoping for a new expansion as well, doesn’t look like that will happen now.
