Now that the Game has been released, no more speculation guys!

As EA CEO J. Riccitiello said:
“Half a million subscribers for the game is substantially profitable but it’s not the kind of thing that we would write home about. Anything north of a million subscribers is a very profitable business.”

This tells us a little bit about the ambitions of EA and Bioware are, they clearly intended The Old Republic to be a major player in the MMO industry and they are unlikely to settle for anything less than this.

Now, more than a month after release, it is clear that these are reasonable numbers, numbers which have been achieved and then some. As the game continues to grow we will see new benchmarks set by EA and Bioware, and (fortune permitting) one day they might be in a position to have their next goal as toppling World of Warcraft, as the Biggest MMORPG in the world.

Good luck Star Wars The Old Republic!
