It is announced that there will be a one week delay for the next update to the game – Swtor 5.8. This decision is based on Swtor team’s internal testing and PTS feedback, and unfortunately, Swtor 5.9 will also be delayed with one additional week. Read the detailed information below.
Swtor patch 5.8 delayed to be released on Mar 20
Swtor producer Keith Kanneg has talked about the status of Game Updates 5.8 and 5.9 on Community. Swtor 5.8 release date is now on Tuesday March 20, which is delayed for one week. There is also one additional week for Swtor 5.9, planned to release on Tuesday, May 1.
Why are Swtor 5.8 and 5.9 pushed back one week?
Keith explained the reason why Swtor 5.8 and 5.9 are pushed back one week. After reviewing the internal test results along with the feedback they have received on their Public Test Server (PTS), the Swtor team thinks Swtor 5.8 is not ready for release and needs a bit more time to make the necessary adjustments. Therefore, they make the decision on its delay. This additional time will help ensure they deliver a quality experience with Izax, the final Boss encounter for Gods from the Machine.
It seems the issues are mostly with the final boss to the Iokath Operation – Izax. Swtor 5.8 is expected to bring Swtor Izax in game, which is one of the most challenging encounters to defeat in the game. There will also be an upcoming in-game event for Swtor Izax, and beating Swtor Izax will grant you a time locked Achievement, exclusive title and special reward.
We hope that Swtor 5.8 will be released on Mar 20 as their plan. Anyway, here you can stock cheap Swtor credits in advance to make some preparation.
