However, Star Wars: The Old Republic – Legacy of the Sith will not be getting this prize. Keith Kanneg, the project lead, announced on the game’s website that BioWare isn’t going to release the expansion by the end of the current year. “We have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Legacy of the Sith to February 2022. Like many of you reading this, I cannot wait for the launch of our subsequent expansion. I’ve greatly enjoyed my time exploring the depths of Manaan, testing out the new story and ability combinations with Combat Styles, and more during internal playtests.
Legacy of the Sith is something the team has been hard at work on for quite a while, but as we get ever closer to launch, it is clear that we need a bit more time. We’re focusing additional testing on the many areas we have changed throughout the game to deliver the experience we want and one that you deserve.
In addition, during our public test server (PTS), your feedback was invaluable in helping us to shape this expansion. Outside of story content (to avoid spoilers), the majority of the expansion and its features will be returning to the PTS for all subscribers this week,” Kanneg wrote. If only other games followed the example.
Still, we have to ask, which significant game will be delayed the last to next year? Then again, we might not have anything else planned for 2021 (as even Dying Light 2: Stay Human slid over to February, which will be a ridiculous time for gaming).
