Star Wars: The Old Republic will receive two updates that will feature “customization and convenience features,” and they will be arriving on May 14 and June 11. Community manager Eric Musco announced the news today on the game’s official forums, and he stated that these two patches will feature a ton of big fixes and game improvements. Game Update 2.2 will not feature new Cartel Market features, but I’m sure that the wealth of improvements will be just as welcomed to the fans.
“I think the core of some of your frustrations is that you feel like Game Update 2.1 is ‘eating up a slot’ for our regular content cadence, and because of that, you won’t actually be receiving any new content in this ‘cycle,’” Musco wrote in the forums.
“If you are keeping track and we hit those dates, Game Update 2.2 will be releasing eight weeks and two days from the time we released Rise of the Hutt Cartel (so basically around our eight week cadence that is often referenced). What that means is that even though I can’t yet tell you what is in Game Update 2.2, you are getting two game updates within that period.”
Since going free to play in July, EA has reported that the game’s revenue has roughly doubled, so that’s a bit of good news for the massive publisher.
