During Gamecon 2015, EA unveiled a new gameplay trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic’s upcoming expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire.

Maybe if they had not laid off so much of their staff (particularly those in the community department) then they would not have to back out of this event. Anyway, it’s a real bummer to the fans but it sounds like it’s officially a sure thing. This thread explains the news:…
