Star Wars: The Old Republic – Revenues doubled after going Free-to-Play

After adopting the Free-to-Play model, many players started calling SWTOR a dead game. Numbers show that that’s far from true though as revenue for  BioWare’s MMORPG has more than doubled and subscriptions have increased since adopting the free-to-play model last year.

“Since it was induced in November, we’ve added more than 1.7 million new players on the free model to the service,” said Electronic Arts president of labels Frank Gibeau. “And the number of subscriptions has stabilized at just under half a million.”

“The really interesting thing that’s happening inside the service right now is monthly average revenue for the game has more than doubled since we introduced the free-to-play option. And as we look forward, we’re going to continually invest in new content for the service and for players every six weeks or so.”

Star Wars: The Old Republic just received its first upcoming and getting a major patch in the coming weeks. It’s one of the most solid F2P MMORPG choices out there so if you haven’t had a look at it yet check it out at the SWTOR Official Website!
