In the quarterly earnings call for Electronic Arts, they announced they had 1.7 million active subscribers to SWTOR. These are some pretty huge numbers but just what do they mean? These figures count the number of players who have subscribed to the game past the first month free trial you get with purchase.

This means that Star Wars: The Old Republic has gained more followers in the first month than Blizzard Entertainment’s immensely popular World Of Warcraft (WoW) did during the same period. (via Hexus)

Of course, these are just early figures and in the SWTOR vs WoW arena, Blizzard has a 7-year head start.

The true test of MMORPG brilliance will come when we see where SWTOR is in the long run. Where will they be after 6 months? What about a year from release? What about 7 years?

The true test of success lies in whether or not it can stand the test of time. Will SWTOR be like EverQuest and World of Warcraft or will it die off quickly like so many other games in the genre (especially in recent years)?

While none of us can completely predict the future, there are sure signs that EA/BioWare are doing what they can to try to ensure success. They have previously announced they have years of content in the making right now so it’s certain they are in it for the long haul. Can they keep the interest of the gamers that long, however?

Chime in and tell us what you think.
