With almost no news in the lead up to Star Wars Celebration, we speculate wildly about what BioWare could reveal at the Community Cantina.

Who knows what will be revealed about what’s coming up for SWTOR at the Community Cantina being held in conjunction with Star Wars Celebration? Certainly not us! But we make a few good (or perhaps not-so-good) guesses…
