The MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic was supposed to get its eighth expansion on December 14th. The expansion pack “Legacy of the Sith” is now late at the last minute. The extension is now only to appear on February 15, 2022.

Bioware developers need a little more time

In a new blog post, the Bioware developers comment on the delay in the expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic. 

“The team has been working on Legacy of the Sith for a while, but as we’re getting closer to launch, it’s clear we need a little more time,” said Project Director Keith Kanneg.

 He adds, “We’re focusing on additional testing in the many areas that we’ve changed across the game to deliver the experience we want and you deserve.”

To further advance feature and content testing, most of the new non-story content will return to SWTOR’s public testing server for all subscribers later in the week. The release date of the new expansion “Legacy of the Sith” was officially announced last month. The postponement is therefore likely to come as a surprise to many fans. “Legacy of the Sith” should also be the starting point for the ten-year anniversary of the MMORPG.

The new expansion deals with the return of the renegade Sith Darth Malgus. Players will explore illustrious locations such as the underwater world of Manaan, the Sith Fortress Ruins of Elom and the R-4 Anomaly. On the gameplay side, there is a new character generator, redesigned fighting styles, blending of class skills, and a range of quality-of-life features.
