Star Wars: The Old Republic hits 1.7 Million Players

That old galaxy far, far away is doing pretty well for itself. Since launching six weeks ago, BioWare’s highly anticipated MMORPG has sold over 2 million copies and earned 1.7 million active subscribers.

“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.”

Added Dr. Greg Zeschuk, Co-Founder of BioWare and General Manager of the BioWare MMO Business Unit: “But we’re not resting! We’re actively listening to our community for ongoing feedback to help us ensure the game and service continue to improve, and we’re working to deliver spectacular new high quality content on a regular cadence going forward.”

Here are the current milestones for the game:

  • 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
  •  
    BioWare also announced that the next game update, featuring loads of new content, will be released in Spring 2012.
