Stuart Galloway posted on Facebook that he recovered an email from Wayland Games that states that his pre order for both the Imperial and Rebel Specialist expansions are being delayed by Fantasy Flight Games until March 29th 2019.
The Specialist Expansions are expected to be released in a few weeks at the end of January.
Wayland Games distributes in the UK. No news in regards if this is a localized issue with Wayland Games or if other companies, e.i. Alliance who distributes in the USA, is also experiencing similar delays.
Though on Fantasy Flight Games’ Upcoming section of their website, the Specialists are still listed as being “In Development”. Based on past releases the expansions would be listed as “On the Boat” by now if they were to meet the original expected release date of January 24th. This seems to had credence to a possible delay.

Alliance, who distributes in the US, looks like they are still on track for the late January release.
Also the Spanish FFG site has the two Specialist expansions listed with a release date of January.
