Star Wars: The Old Republic Producer Bruce Maclean has published the 2014 Roadmap on the official site to lay out how the game will be progressing throughout the next few months. Included is the news that the free digital expansion, Galactic Starfighter, will launch for all players on Tuesday, February 4th and that players can expect another significant update in April.
There’s a lot of stuff being worked on! The team that brought you 2013 is still here and working hard to bring you another action packed year. As I write this we are actively developing all of the above as well as PvP Seasons, new Flashpoints, new Operations, new gear, performance improvements, and changes coming to Classes. Expect to see two digital expansions in 2014 just like you did last year, with one similar to Galactic Starfighter in scope and one more closely resembling Rise of the Hutt Cartel. We reserve the right to adjust our plans based on bad reasons like Snow Days in Austin(!) or good reasons like your feedback, but our current plan is to deliver all of the above to you in 2014.
Lastly, Maclean reveals that the minor update schedule, originally slated for every two weeks, will be shifted to every three weeks to give the team more time for testing procedures prior to release.
