Does anyone know when they will be releasing more objectives for these factions?

Not until after the Hoth cycle finishes I imagine. They're releasing a big box expansion for it.

Ahhh sounds good. Im guessing with the 2 cycles and then a big box expansion that all factions will have pretty equal amount of objectives? Or at least close.

Generally that is how they do it in the other games, most factions are fairly close in cardcount after enough time.

From the Desolation of Hoth preview on FFG:
Quote:
In addition to the narrative arc that follows the Battle of Hoth, this cycle also features a number of objective sets that expand upon core themes for the Jedi, Sith, Scum and Villainy, and Smugglers & Spies affiliations. Not everyone was as deeply involved in the Hoth confrontation, and we made the important design decision to expand a number of options for the various themes introduced in the Core Set even as we presented an engaging struggle for Hoth. In the weeks ahead, we’ll look more closely at a number of the cards and objective sets that are on their way in The Hoth Cycle.


From the Search For Skywalker preview:
Quote:
Inspired by the early scenes of The Empire Strikes Back, The Search for Skywalker expands the universe of Star Wars: The Card Game with new characters, vehicles, Star Destroyers, and Rebel defenses. Meanwhile, the dark side’s Scum and Villains mass on Tatooine at Jabba’s palace where they receive orders to pursue new bounties.


So - we will see them expanded in the Hoth cycle according to Nate French's first quote. While nothing in the Desolation of Hoth (the first Force Pack) preview sounds like it will expand Smugglers or Scum, Scum & Villany sounds like it's getting a bounty hunter kick (probably a single Objective set) in the second Force Pack.

Edit: Quotes are from these two news articles - http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=3727 and http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=3797

As already noted in the thread, it will come before that.
The first big box will have multiplayer as the selling point.
The second perhaps will have faction 7 and 8 as selling point?

We already know a big box is coming for Scum and Villainy and Smugglers and Spies, which are factions 5 & 6, not 7 & 8. It is called Edge of Darkness. It is in the rulebook on page 28.

My only major gripe with the game is that Scum/Smugglers don't seem fully playable (in a stand alone sense) but it's nice to see that they will be getting at least some love in the upcoming force packs. I can't wait to play a legitimate Scum and Villany deck with a ton of bounty hunters and what not instead of Sith/Imperial Navy co-starring Boba Fett.

I really can't imagine anyone here not sharing your anticipation.

Oh, I only used the 1-sheet to get to the tutorial and haven't read the rules at all. I blame that. whistle
