Star Wars: The old Republic Nearing $1 Billion in Lifetime Revenue

Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR), a MMO developed by BioWare that released in late 2011, is apparently still a commercial success for EA. A recent earnings call from the publisher revealed that the game is currently coming very close to topping $1 billion in revenue. Now, that is over the course of about 8 years, but it’s still impressive nonetheless. SWTOR was an insanely expensive undertaking for EA to begin with. Reportedly, the game set the publisher back roughly $200 million for initial development costs. With that number alone, one would assume that translates to EA raking in nearly $800 million in pure profit, right? Well, keep in mind that the game is still being continually updated with new content, patches, and so on. There are STILL ongoing costs for development of the game. So, how much profit has EA actually pulled in with Star Wars: The Old Republic?…
