Star Wars: The Old republic has 1.7 million active subscribers; 2 million copies sold already

Posted By | On 02nd, Feb. 2012

And people thought this game wouldn’t do well.

With just two months on the shelves, Star Wars: The Old Republic, BioWare’s MMO, has already sold 2 million copies, EA has confirmed. 1.7 million of those players are regular subscribers, meaning that they play TOR on a regular basis.

The remaining 300,000 either haven’t opened their copies yet (for some reason), or have “opted out”, according to EA.

“[This] makes Star Wars: The Old Republic the fastest-growing subscription MMO in history,” EA claimed during their financial call earlier today. “[The MMO is] more successful than we anticipated,” said EA’s chief financial officer Eric Brown.

40 per cent of the sales, EA confirmed, have been digital, through Origin, and so the massive sales of the game haven’t been reflected in the recent reports, since digital sales are not kept track of by third party data firms.
