You're going to have to wait a little longer to play Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith -- this expansion has been delayed to early 2022.
It's been a pretty good year for Star Wars fans: a Knights of the Old Republic remake was announced and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is getting a free next-gen upgrade and has gotten rid of Denuvo DRM. Unfortunately, there's also a bit of bad news to close out the year -- the next Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion has been delayed.
"Like many of you reading this, I personally cannot wait for the launch of our next expansion," read a statement from Project Director Keith Kanneg on the game's official website (via Reddit). "I've greatly enjoyed my time exploring the depths of Manaan, testing out new story and ability combinations with Combat Styles, and more during internal playtests."
"Legacy of the Sith is something the team has been hard at work on for quite a while but as we get ever closer to launch, it is clear that we need a bit more time. We’re focusing additional testing on the many areas we have changed throughout the game to deliver the experience we want, and one that you deserve."
When is the Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith Release Date?
The Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith release date is February 15, 2022. That's roughly two months later than its originally planned launch date of December 14, 2021.
On the upside, you'll still have a chance to play some of the content on the test server; today's announcement notes that the "majority of the expansion and its features" will be returning to the PTS for all subscribers this week (sans any story content). You can play Star Wars: The Old Republic for free on PC via its official website.
