ESI Chat Channel Deprecation

Ever since EVE's new chat backend was released on March 20th the ESI route /v1/characters/{character_id}/chat_channels/ has been returning stale data. It has been decided to officially deprecate this route, meaning that it will be labelled as "legacy" and start returning deprecation headers. This endpoint will then be removed completely on May 18th, 2018.

When will chat channel functionality be returning to ESI? At this point in time there is no ETA on the return of chat functionality in ESI or even what form it will take. All that is known is that it will look radically different than it did with /v1/characters/{character_id}/chat_channels/. You can be sure that once we know what the future of EVE chat will look like for third party developers that it will be announced here on this blog, so keep your eyes peeled!
