BioWare: SWTOR subscriber numbers have remained steady

While we keep hearing the rumors that SWTOR is a sinking ship or that it is not as popular as BioWare claims. BioWare continues to deny these rumors and recently said in an interview with PC Gamer that the subscriber numbers have remained steady since launch.

BioWare lead writer Daniel Erickson told PC Gamer:

“”Nothing is off the table when it comes to making sure our communities are strong and active on each server.”

This response came as a reaction to a prediction by Cowen analyst Doug Creutz that upset some fans who say the game is doing great.

Last week Cowen analyst Doug Creutz ruffled a few fanboy feathers with his prediction of declining subscription numbers for Star Wars: The Old Republic. BioWare lead writer Daniel Erickson responded by saying that subscriptions are not dropping but that the number of concurrent users at peak times has gone down.

So what do you think? We’ve had players from our community leave but there are new ones coming in at what seems to be the same rate or even more. So while I certainly know people who have quit playing, I really don’t believe it’s affecting the overall numbers all that much when I see so many new players coming into the game as well.
