Analyst suggests The Old Republic is already losing subscribers

Arstechnica- It seems like just last month that producers at Blizzard were worrying publicly that EA's Star Wars: The Old Republic was partially to blame for World of Warcraft's declining subscriber numbers. But now there's reason to believe The Old Republic itself is already seeing its own decline in subscribers, only months after its launch late last year.

In an investor note released today, Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz said he suspects that subscription levels for The Old Republic may already be lower than the 1.7 million EA reported in February. Creutz's primary piece of evidence for this belief is publicly available server population numbers assembled and reported by TORstatus.net. These figures have shown a roughly 10 percent decline over the last two months. That doesn't necessarily mean the game has lost 10 percent of its subscribers in that time, of course, but it isn't really a sign of strong player growth, either.

Knew it had to be a reason for all the daily half price/free weekend deals.

Think they lost a substantial amount around ME3's launch. Saw numerous posts from people complaining about their guilds or whatever falling apart from people quitting.

Its still doing good. As long as they keep up the support.

I didn't get passed the second month. It just didn't have that lasting power. Hell I played Rift longer than TOR.

What did you expect your going to need something stronger than this for an online community to be as big if not bigger than WOWC

Not sure what, but it will have to be something really universal
