While BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic has only been out for four months, it’s not surprising to hear that they’re facing an uphill battle – especially since they’re going up against MMORPG juggernaut World of Warcraft.
In saying this, the studio has a few plans up its sleeve to make sure players keep on logging in to Star Wars: The Old Republic.
BioWare’s Daniel Erickson claims that subscriber numbers haven’t dropped but concurrent users at peak times have. This is one of the major reasons why some players are noticing a lot of servers with “light” population. In saying this, Erickson also reveals that mergers are being considered but not a priority as of the moment.
You know what is? Making sure players keep coming back to the game itself. According to Erickson, they’re doing “anything and everything” to bring that concurrent users figure up and he added, “Nothing is off the table when it comes to making sure our communities are strong and active on each server.”
If you’re one of the many playing The Old Republic, should you be worried or is BioWare just making sure that players don’t get bored easily with their new MMO?
