There’s been a disturbance in the Force. A week before its release, the newest expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, “Legacy of the Sith”, has been delayed until February 2022.
The game’s project director Keith Kanneg announced the delay in a blog post:
Like many of you reading this, I personally cannot wait for the launch of our next expansion. I’ve greatly enjoyed my time exploring the depths of Manaan, testing out 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.”
Kanneg went on to thank Star Wars: The Old Republic PTS players for their valuable feedback and promised that the non-story content and features would be back up this week. He completed the post by saying, “We’re thrilled to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Star Wars: The Old Republic with all of you over the next year with Legacy of the Sith and more!”
The newest Old Republic expansion was announced earlier this year in a live stream with the development team. In the stream, BioWare said the expansion would continue the story of The Old Republic where players seek to hunt down Darth Malagus while exploring new planets.
“Legacy Of The Sith” was originally set to release on Tuesday, December 14, but the Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion has been delayed for two months. The new release date is set for Tuesday, February 15.
