An introduction from Rob Denton, President of Broadsword + 7.4 Livestream announcement from Keith Kanneg, Executive Producer
Hi everyone – Rob Denton here, President of Broadsword Online Games. Now that some time has passed, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and share some details on Star Wars™: The Old Republic and Broadsword. First off, I’m thrilled that the SWTOR team has joined Broadsword. During my time at BioWare, I worked on the game (and closely with the team) for several years and helped support the 2011 launch, so it’s very near to my heart.
Keith Kanneg, as the Executive Producer, sets the vision for the game, and he’ll continue to maintain the relationship with Lucasfilm Games and Electronic Arts. Keith and I will work closely together to ensure that SWTOR continues to grow, thrive and be the amazing game that you all love.
I’ll let Keith say more about Game Update 7.4, but I see a very bright future for SWTOR and our plans are already starting to take shape for new and exciting things. I have always been fond of SWTOR, and I look forward to seeing what this amazing team will create and continue to build upon in the years to come.
I couldn’t be more pleased working with Rob and the team at Broadsword and building out future plans for SWTOR and our players. I wanted to take the opportunity to check in with all of you and give an update on where we are with Game Update 7.4. The last couple of months has been incredibly busy with us launching 7.3: Old Wounds and 7.3.1 alongside technology improvements including our migration to cloud game servers. The team has been hard at work getting Game Update 7.4 out the door, and I cannot wait for players to experience the content in it.
I’m pleased to announce that we will be hosting a livestream going over the finer details of the update on October 18th at 1:30pm CT / 6:30pm UTC over on our streaming channel. During the stream, players will be hearing from a variety of voices, including myself, and will be getting a sneak peek into everything coming in 7.4.
Very excited for the team to show off what they’ve been working on, and I’m looking forward to seeing all of you very soon.
May the Force be with you!
-Keith Kanneg, Executive Producer of Star Wars: The Old Republic
