Writing on the official Old Republic community news site, BioWare today said that "issues requiring additional testing" have been found in the update's test server and have led the developer to delay the scheduled content update.

A new release date was not offered for Rise of the Rakghouls, but BioWare said gamers should expect it sometime "in the next few days."

Rise of the Rakghouls is The Old Republic's first content update. It includes a new mission, as well as anti-aliasing and player-versus-player bracketing for the WarZones mode.
