Data Mined Chapter 4: Rise of the Hutt Cartel + Data Dump Info

SWTOR Spy found a very interesting item when looking at all the items that you can buy in the Cartel Market (cash shop that is getting introduced with the free to play option for SWTOR):

Chapter 4: Rise of the Hutt Cartel

Binds On Equip

Grants all characters on your account access to “Chapter 4: Rise of the Hutt Cartel””

Applies the selected unlock to your Player Character or to your Account.

While we are absolutely not sure what this means, the crew at SWTOR Spy has a theory:

In our opinion, this means that the next content patch will bring the fourth chapter in our character’s story and it will be called Rise of the Hutt Cartel. For those of us closely following Star Wars: The Old Republic this comes as no surprise. During our interview at Gamescom 2012 we were told by both Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer of SWTOR (watch the interview here), and Gabe Amatangelo, Principal Lead PvP Designer (watch the interview here), that the next content we can expect will be happening on a new planet Makeb and that it will be bringing the continuation of our personal story. We will try and find out more information about this next content patch and we’ll update this article as new information becomes available.

We know that this won’t be here with 1.5 but we expect to see it in early 2013 with a new game update. In addition to this little gem that SWTOR Spy found, Werits Blog has some information about a data dump and some store items.
