No timeline updates?

What's with the lack of timeline updates? It hasn't been updated since the release and even before that...

 

Officially BW felt that they were moving so far away from the game's era that there supposedly wouldn't be much connection to the game and so they stopped them, possibly the very vocal small minority who complained about the last entry had something to do with it and then Dark Horse came to the same territory with very different ideas in mind:

What's the matter with the last holorecord, if I may ask? The one about the great Hyperspace War? I love it!

 

And is Dark Horse Comic's take on the early history different than Bioware's?

 

Great Hyperspace War timeline video outraged supporters of the Jedi and the Republic, they complained about it bitterly in the official thread - and in other threads - which grew to be huge even when possibly hundreds of posts were removed by mods because of their nature. It's quite possible this had an effect.

 

Dark Horse's version is seemingly utterly different of what we see in JC's story except the place name of Kaleth and the planet Tython. It actually pretty totally re-writes the pre-history and early history of the Jedi, so it's different from all previous canon views of the era, on which BW's would have likely been based and enlargened from.

 

Not only that, this new pre-history of the Jedi is an ongoing story, and BW doing timeline videos based on the intended story would also spoil it. Although DH might, true to their nature, cancel the series before the story will be fully told.

I hope they finish them, they were really interesting. It would be great if we could get a official response on the topic.

 

We've had one. In Reddit or whatever-is-it's name. And that's that they won't be finishing them for all likelihood.

Just to give an old post a needed bump, I too was/am looking forward to the completion of the timeline videos. It might be of interest that they reposted the unfinished timeline references when they updated the Site and changed the video from a timeline to a "Galactic History " collection. One could speculate that this may be an indication of their possible intent to finish them. One can only hope anyway. Edited by Kor-Wal

Hello everyone,

 

As detailed in our Community Q&A Blog for March 23rd, 2012, we have no current plans to continue the Timeline, although we may consider a different series in the future.

 

Pzljug: When are you guys going to finish the Timeline on the Holonet?

 

Stephen Reid (Senior Community Manager): When the Timeline series was begun we weren’t entirely sure how many timelines would be needed to detail relevant backstory for The Old Republic and left ‘blank spaces’ on the Timeline that, we thought, would all be filled in with Timeline entries. Ultimately, we feel we’ve detailed all the relevant backstory required, so no more Timeline entries going back into earlier history are planned. However, we know how much players enjoyed the lore details, style and presentation of Timelines, so we’re planning to continue that with a different series (currently unscheduled!) which will detail other aspects of the lore of The Old Republic.

 

 

Thanks for your interest in and enjoyment of the Timeline series!
