We know we are late with this story, due to a misunderstanding we are posting it a few days late. But here goes.
BioWare had one of there infamous SWTOR Community Cantina’s this last weekend. At the event new info was released as well as alot of hints of what might be comming.
stevebelt asked about player housing, and while the verbal answer was of the “that’s a good idea” variety, judging by his not-so-wry smile and general body language, I’d say it’s almost a certainty they are working on player housing. In his question he made a note of how ripe for CM player housing content was, and the smiling/nodding only got bigger. Based on this, I would be completely stunned if we don’t see player housing in 2014.
At the Cantina they said that a new story arc would begin with the 2.7 update, and would reach an “EPIC” conclusion by the end of the year. An official blog post about the new arc may be out within the next week. With regard to new classes or new companion storylines, they said the resources required to do that are huge, and they would rather use those resources to provide new content — planetary storylines — that all toons could play.
Legacy level cap
They also said that raising the Legacy level cap and adding corresponding perks was “on the roadmap” but did not say more than that. One BW person said a Legacy vault — i.e. a place to keep all your alts’ mats and trade-able items — would require too much coding.
