There WILL NOT be any prequel ships released for X-Wing. FFG only has the rights for OT, besides this game is based on the X-Wing/ TIE Fighter PC games which I don't count towards EU.
Disney is trying to erase all things prequel right now.
Is that fact or are you speculating?
He's speculating. As noted, FFG has *already used* prequel stuff in their products. Their RPG has Gungans and Toydarians and battle droids. Heck, even THIS game has the Senator's Shuttle in the CORE SET - and that was from Episode 1.
Indeed, the only time the Z-95 appeared on-screen at all was during the CGI 'Clone Wars' TV series, so...
Yeah, the prequels are unquestionably *in*.
Still, FFG has stated that the time period of the game is 'the Rebellion Era', so I would personally NOT expect to see the Republic and Separatists as distinct factions. It seems more likely to me that we just get some ships from that period in the future waves, as 'Clone Wars surplus' that are still in use. (The Rebels would surely use any ARC-170s they could get their hands on, for example)
I wouldn't be to sure on no new factions. 2 waves of prequel would give them just about enough time for the new trilogy to drop some new ships if you also add in a rebel aces pack (1 Awing, 1 Ywing please), some repaints, and an Imperial War Machine pack with titles to turn the advanced into x2-7 and an avenger even; a few titles for some of the other tie variants; other upgrades usable for the interceptor too; maybe a really obscene dial; maybe a rear firing arc inset for the advanced. Fun stuff.
Eta-2, cloakscape,Nantex, naboo fighter, vulture droids, Arc-180, fanblade fighters, vwing, droid trifighter, kwing, sith intercepter, rogue class, scarab,aethersprite, hex, skipspray blastboat, Belbullab-22... More than 2 waves worth for sure.
