Today the c2c PIS seems to have been updated, adding a "next station" announcement after opening the doors, and removing the departure time from the external displays.

I never understood the need for the departure times on external displays - updating at every station and frequently showing "00:00" when diversionary headcodes were used.

Unfortunately the extra space now available on the displays hasn't been used to show stations in full, they are still shown in their previous abbreviated form.

Does anyone know why the departure time was originally shown on the displays and are there any other TOCs who did/still do show the time?

Isn’t it the arrival time at the destination that’s displayed ?

No, it is (was) the booked departure time from each station, and would update when the "we are now approaching" announcement played.
