XL Citadels require Sov?

I heard a rumor recently that deploying / anchoring an XL Citadel in nullsec may require having Sov.

Any chance someone from CCP can confirm or deny?

Everything I've heard and read so far says XLs can be anchored in any system, regardless of Sov.

That is correct.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

Yes, it's been confirmed that these won't be in Jita.

I know they have said that citadels will be unavailable in specific key systems, but has anyone heard if Thera is one of the systems we can't anchor in? I am sure there could be lots of interesting things happen there if we can.

I understand the restrictions wrt WHs, Jita and so on.

What I was trying to ask is whether there are now plans to change the XL anchoring rules from what was previously announced....

If Sov is no longer required to have what amounts to a Station, and with some / most of the system upgrade features apparently now being moved into Citadel modules, what benefits remain for having / holding Sov? The effect on renters will be interesting.

No Citadels in shattered-systems, including Thera
