Star Wars: The Old Republic executive producer Jeff Hickman has released the second State of the Game for the MMO, and one of the most intriguing items is that Hickman confirms that gay romances are coming.
In the blog, he states, "I realize that we promised SGR (same gender romance) to you guys and that many of you believed that this would be with a companion character. Unfortunately, this will take a lot more work than we realized at the time and it (like some other pieces of content we talked about earlier in the year) has been delayed as we focused on the changes required to take the game Free-to-Play. As we have said in the past, allowing same gender romance is something we are very supportive of."
As far as gameplay itself, Hickman promises more end-game content, stating ("Introducing new content and activities for the elder game is a top priority in the coming year. We’ve got new Operations, new Flashpoints, new difficulty modes, new PvP areas, and of course, the entire Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel (which is targeted at our high level players)"
He then cautioned players not to expect worldwide PvP this year, and promised them that free character copies to test servers would be coming sometime in the near future.
