During the Electronic Arts investor call, Frank Gibeau announced that even though subscribership in Star Wars: The Old Republic has plummeted, the revenue has doubled since it went free-to-play.
According to Gibeau, the MMO is "just under" 500,000 subscribers, which was at 1.3M at this time last year. However, the game also added 1.7M players since the switch to free-to-play, doubling the revenue at this time last year.
Gibeau promises that BioWare will continue to create new content and services at the rate of once every six weeks. The Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion was recently released.
