The anniversary expansion Legacy of the Sith for Star Wars: The Old Republic was to be released on December 14, but, alas, fans will have to be patient and wait for February 15.
According to project director Keith Kanneg, the team carefully studied user reviews during the tests and concluded that the expansion needs extra time for polishing. Kanneg claims that decision was not easy to make, but the main priority for developers is to provide fans with the experience they deserve.
We have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Legacy of the Sith to February 15, 2022.
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.
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.
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!
Note that the add-on will send players to the planet Manaan from Knights of the Old Republic, where they will explore the deeds of the renegade Sith Darth Malgus.
