We'll said mate.
But;
with the ponzi scheme selling multiple lemon products a year EA shouldn't have a problem flipping the bill for new expansions.

EA sucks

@real65rcncom Hah, I saw that same episode!

And you know what? They were playing with the high-res client the devs use!

I was like: "oh hey, that's not normal SW:TOR, I can see scratchy details on that armor!"

while it's not the game for me, I'm glad that SWTOR is doing well, gives me hope for when my anticipated game comes out.

I assume that game is Guild Wars 2 ... and as an MMO player that's having a ridiculously good time in TOR (and happily locked in for 6 months), I can say with no trepidation that Guild Wars 2 looks totally freakin' awesome! Arenanet will get some of my hard-earned credits ... er, dollars!

That's a respectable number. I'm one of those who left the game after a couple months but I'm glad there's a good amount of people staying.

@Yog It's a respectable number. I'm surprised that they can assume retention is stabilized so soon, but even though I think SWTOR is gaming garbage I don't have any particular need to see it die a flaming death.

It's enough to know that choose-your-own-cutscene isn't going to join the ranks of standard MMO mechanics anytime soon.

Every month so far I keep saying this is my last month. I then pull out the credit card and sign up for another month when my sub ends. I know I will be gone when Diablo 3 and or GW 2 or Aion FTP comes out. The way its going I most likely will be subbed until then.

Grats Bioware!

it'll be interesting to see how the numbers fluctuate after some big name releases drop (GW2, TSW, etc, etc.) There is usually a large group of players that are always searching for "The Next Big Thing".

@IveDefected

This. From my PoV TOR has 2 big obstacles and several smaller ones to overcome before we can truly anoint it as the Next Big Thing.

The big hurdles are, of course, GW2 and Mists of Pandawhatever, but I think even the likes of TERA, TSW, and D3 will take their own not insignificant bites out of the TOR subscriber base.

I also can't help shake the nagging feeling that, considering the price tag, investors might still be undersold on TOR in spite of having 1.7m subs.

They all also said that they expect SW:TOR to break over 2 million subscribers by the end of June, at their rate of growth. I don't know that stabilize is the right word to use for the article, since they suggest it's going beyond that.

Was this just a press release or was he specifically speaking to EA stockholders?

I wouldn't get too excited for Bioware when it comes to TOR. I'm glad it's doing well, but the lion's share of the money, almost certainly, is going to George Lucas. It's well known that agreements to use the Star Wars property are HEAVILY weighted towards Lucasfilm. I'd be surprised if Bioware gets 30% of the profits.

@AlienFanatic This is exactly why I laugh when people always bring up EA. "EA will just do this or that.", or "EA will ruin it or won't allow that." as if people don't realize that LucasArts and by extension George Lucas is the FINAL WORD ON EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN STAR WARS.

Lucas clears EVERYTHING.
