SWTOR’s First New Raid in 2+ Years Delayed a Week

Some of you have been waiting over 2 years since the last raid so what’s another week? Yesterday on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic forums community manager Eric Musco made the untimely announcement.

“We want to ensure our updates release at the highest quality possible and Game Update 5.2: The War for Iokath is no different. At this point in time, we are not satisfied with the quality of the Iokath update. For that reason, we are delaying the release of 5.2 by one week, to release on April 18th.”

The War of Iokath will introduce a new raid which many fans have been asking for over the years. Update 5.2 initially only brings the first boss with subsequent bosses being released in the coming months. In an attempt to less the blow they’ve also extended the 250% experience bonus until the new release date.
