If you’re a fan of Bioware’s MMO then you undoubtedly know about and are excited about the upcoming Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion that’s been announced. Well it seems that Executive Producer Jeff Hickman has clarified some things about the expansion in a new ‘State of the Game’ blog post.
The post covers topic such as new level 50 content, Player versus Player improvements, Character copying and finally the much awaited Same Gender Romance options.
He said that the last option wasn’t going to be in the update but reassured players that they were working on it and that it was an important issue for them:
“First of all, I want to apologize that this is taking so long to get in the game. I realize that we promised SGR 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.”
