SWTOR Game Update 5.5 planned for October 10

Eric Musco just informed the official Star Wars: The old Republic Community that SWTOR Game Update 5.5 will go live  on October 10 with some content shuffled into Game Update 5.6.

Any update in the Roadmap? What about 5.5? | 09.13.2017, 05:07 PM

Provide you with updates, I can!

  1. The roadmap is still in progress. We have been shuffling some things around with respect to 5.5 and 5.6 and we need that to settle before we can let you know exactly what is coming and when.
  2. It was our plan to put out Game Update 5.5 in late September but we have made the decision to move it into early October (currently 10/10). We did this to allow us more time to focus in on quality for our Game Updates to avoid some of the issues we had with 5.4.
  3. Class balance is still planned for 5.5. I expect I will start putting out those details starting next week.
  4. We know returning Companions is something there is great interest in. As soon as we have an announcement on any Companions coming back in a Game Update, you will be the first to know!
