BioWare Developing SWTOR for the Longterm Future

We all know that for SWTOR to continue to be as successful as it has been on launch, they will need to do a lot more work on developing future content. Of course, BioWare knows this, too and they are already working on it.

In an article on PC Gamer, they reveal that they are working on content right now that we won’t see for at least a year or more.

“Our writers are working on content you won’t see for over a year,” game director James Ohlen told PC Gamer. “We have a lot of plans. Because of the voice overs, cinematics and moving parts, we have to look way into the future.”

This makes sense considering the game took so many years to fully develop in the first place and that it has so many different elements that must go into it.

“We want to show our fans that we’re serious about supporting the game so we’re going to be releasing new game updates on a regular basis. We have one coming in a week, then we have one in March, then a third one coming after that. Then a fourth and fifth,” he continued.

They continue in the interview to talk about possible expansions, annual updates, whether or not these would cost the player additional money and more. Ohlen says that right now they are focused on providing free game updates on a regular basis.

For those of us already paying $15/month to enjoy the game, this is good news.
