Star Wars: The Old Republic players woke up to some disappointing news this morning as developers BioWare announced an unexpected delay with the launch of Update 3.3, an update that was originally expected to go live following maintenance earlier today. According to a post from Community Manager Eric Musco the team ran into some unexpected problems but are still hoping to release the update as soon as possible. Official details on the release schedule are expected to arrive later today.

We are running into some issues with Game Update 3.3, and so we are going to be delaying tonight’s scheduled maintenance. It is still our goal to get out Game Update 3.3 as soon as possible. I will pass on more updates tomorrow. Again, there will be no maintenance tonight which will delay the launch of Game Update 3.3.

  • Bountry Contract Week is delayed until Game Update 3.3 goes live, and will only run until next Tuesday.
