Star Wars: The Old Republic has had a lot of users, even in just the Beta
EA CFO Eric Brown says this about the Beta numbers:
“The game itself has a huge pre-existing fan base. We had about 2.4 million people register for the Star Wars fan site, over 2 million of which volunteered to do [beta] testing for free.
The game clocked up over 725,000 unique users over the thanksgiving weekend. “In terms of peak concurrent users, we had just over a quarter of a million people playing the game simultaneously”
The full game is released on the 2oth of December. The game will only need 500,000 subscribers to make a profit.
