Star Wars: The Old Republic subscription numbers fall

On May 7, 2012 by Aaron Meehan

Bioware’s mmorpg Star Wars: The Old Republic has seen just under a 25% reduction in active subscribers according to its Q4 financial results.

In the Q3 financial results Star Wars: The Old Republic had more than 1.7 million active subscribers, but now in Q4 financial result (January 2012 – March 2012) the active subscriber number has dropped to 1.3 million.

There is no obvious reason for why the mmorpg lost 400,000 subscribers, but the most obvious reason for the drop could be that after the free month of game time that came with the game a good number of people decided not to continue playing.

Apart from the fall in subscribers the financial results also mentions that the next major content patch will be called Allies and it will be released in Q1.

  • I think the reason they are loosing subscribers is basically the fact that people can level way too easily, they then get bored with nothing to do and leave. This is the problem with modern MMORPG’s, where they are soft on the player for death in the game. A few credits to fix things and off you go again.

    The better and in my view, the most beloved MMORPG’s I love had serious penalties for death, not perma death. But it made sure that if you died, it cost you and learned a lesson.
