It looks like BioWare's foray into MMORPGs is off to a good start, as publisher EA has released some numbers from Star Wars: The Old Republic. The big news is that Star Wars: The Old Republic has 1.7 million active subscribers, with over two million copies of the game sold so far. That many active subscribers may be a small amount of the active World of Warcraft accounts, but BioWare looks to be settling in for the long haul. The studio announced The Old Republic Guild Summit for March 4th through the 6th in Austin, Texas, where BioWare will invite guild leaders (or an appointed high-ranking officer) to attend and discuss the game. There will be a Q&A session with the developers, roundtable discussions, and even previews of new game features, which should make any invited guild leader very excited about attending. The goal is to have an open discussion between the designers and the guild leaders, and face-to-face is certainly one way to build a better relationship.
