BioWare took a huge gamble on Star Wars: The Old Republic, and it's paying off, according to EA's Q3 report.  "Star Wars: The Old Republic is developing a committed community of players with more than 1.7 million active subscribers and growing," said Chief Executive Officer John Riccitiello in a statement.

Not only does SWTOR have 1.7 million subscribers it has also sold through more than two million units in a month.

The creation of a top-tier, subscription based MMO is an incredibly risky endeavor, especially when it's an MMO based on a fictional universe that already had an MMO--remember Star Wars: Galaxies? You can bet EA and Bioware were keen to make a very different kind of game than that one, with a different result.You can also bet that nerves were on edge at both companies while they awaited the results of the The Old Republic launch. Today's financial announcement makes it official: SW:TOR is healthy.

Here are a few more just-released SW:TOR facts:

  • Over 239 million in-game hours, or over 332,000 months and over 27,000 years of in-game time
  • Over 20 billion NPCs killed
  • Over 148 billion credits spent

“We’re truly honored and humbled by the incredibly strong support from our players who are enjoying Star Wars: The Old Republic,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Founder of BioWare and General Manager of EA’s BioWare Label. “Our entire team worked very hard over the holidays to deliver a smooth experience at launch, and the resulting response to the game from our fans and critics has been exceptionally gratifying.”
