Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Legacy of the Sith Expansion Delayed to 2022
Star Wars: The Old Republic’s newest expansion, Legacy of the Sith, has been officially delayed to next year. It was initially scheduled to launch on December 14th. Project Director Keith Kanneg has just confirmed that they have decided to delay the expansion to February 15th of 2022.
“Legacy of the Sith is something the team has been hard at work on for quite a while,” Kanneg stated. “But, as we got closer to launch, it is clear that we need a bit more time.”
Star Wars: The Old Republic – Legacy of the Sith is the franchise’s eighth major expansion. The game’s launch was to coincide with the game’s 10th anniversary. Unfortunately, the team behind the game wants to improve a few more things.
“During our public test server, your feedback was invaluable in helping us to shape this expansion,” Kanneg added.
Legacy of the Sith will take place on Manaan and will reportedly feature some familiar faces including Darth Malgus, Arn Peralun, and Tau Idair. It will also mark the arrival of a new style of combat. According to earlier reports, this new system will make combat a bit more interesting for newbie Star Wars: The Old Republic players.
“We are focusing additional testing on the many areas we have changed throughout the game to deliver the experience we want,” Kanneg continued. “And the one that you deserve.”
Star Wars: The Old Republic was first released to the gaming public in 2011. It opened a new avenue for Star Wars adventures that fans of the franchise will surely enjoy. It brought a whole new meaning of peace during a time where the Galactic Empire and the Sith Empire tried to coexist in the universe.
Although the game has officially been delayed to February 15, 2022, it also recently got a 4k remaster of its 2009 trailer. This is part of the celebration for the franchise’s upcoming anniversary.
