Bad News for Star Wars: The Old Republic

Posted: 06:26PM

Electronic Arts revealed in its most recent earnings report that the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO has lost nearly 25% of subscribers since March. The number is down from 1.7 million to 1.3 million, and comes just after Bioware Lead Writer Daniel Erickson said that the game wasn't experiencing a decrease in subscribers. EA Labels President Frank Gibeau seemed unphased stating that the company "intends to increase subscribers" through a number of updates to keep the game appealing. He also believes the drop off can be attributed to casual gamers who were attracted by the Star Wars tie in more than the MMO gameplay.

When the Star Wars tie in is the main difference between your MMO and the hordes or others, those casual gamers were your chance at success.
