The highly anticipated launch of EA and BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic has been going quite well for the publisher, as EA has announced that they have sold over 2 million copies of the game, with over 1.7 million active subscriptions.
The subscription-based MMO has been keeping gamers busy and with the release of the Rise of the Rakghouls DLC, the gameplay is only expanding. EA also says that the next game update is scheduled to be released during Spring 2012.
“We’re truly honored and humbled by the incredibly strong support from our players who are enjoying Star Wars: The Old Republic,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Founder of BioWare and General Manager of EA’s BioWare Label. “Our entire team worked very hard over the holidays to deliver a smooth experience at launch, and the resulting response to the game from our fans and critics has been exceptionally gratifying.”
Added Dr. Greg Zeschuk, Co-Founder of BioWare and General Manager of the BioWare MMO Business Unit: “But we’re not resting! We’re actively listening to our community for ongoing feedback to help us ensure the game and service continue to improve, and we’re working to deliver spectacular new high quality content on a regular cadence going forward.”
Gamers who pick up the game get 30 days of free access to the game, after which a monthly subscription is set to $14.99/month, $41.97 for 3 months or $77.94 for 6 months.
