They pretty much made their money back from their box sales.

At 1 million subscribers it would be “a business that makes good money on an on-going basis” CEO John Riccitiello said during the company’s earnings call yesterday.
 
Anything above 1 million, however, and it’ll start to look like “a great investment.”

Yeah.... Thanks?

So just the numerical layout for a bit of controvercy..... Bioware/EA claims 1.3 million subs across 215 servers worldwide.... That is roughly 6050 accounts per server.... Where are all these people. Seems kinda odd that most independant studies place server populations between 400 - 800 on low pop servers, 800 - 1300 people on average servers, and 1500 - 2000 on high population servers like The Fatman.

Wrong again.

"[But] anything north of 1 million subscribers is a very profitable business."

If they continue to lose about 23.5% of their subs per quarter, the game is going to drop under 500k sometime during Q1 2013.  That's assuming it doesn't drop significant amounts when the 3 month and 6 month subscriptions finally expire.

 

I suppose it's possible that sub numbers stabilize and even go up.  Of course, it's also possible that Earth will experience world peace in the near future... "possible" doesn't mean either are likely.

So you're getting angry at someone not giving them money?

I'm not angry at you though....

It seemd you were :P. But cool, it's all good then :).

Not too long ago people claimed Swtor will go f2p by this time.

Because, you know, it's not like newly released MMOs typically lose subscribers after a few months.

They sold 2.3 million copies. They have 1.3 million subs.

 

THEY LOST 1 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS IN FOUR MONTHS....

HELLO?!

ANYONE THERE MAVERICK?!

Actually it is worse than that considering all the accounts they reactivated for their free month.

Eventually those companies will get published, just like Bioware did. Everything will be great until a company like EA comes along, buy them, fired half the staff, and milks their franchises.

Well only a certain percentage are going to be on at any given time. Hmm Fatman still healthy? Wonder how many bloodfiners are still there.

They had an opt in reactivation for like 7 days as well, question is how many actually did that... No one here knows.

Simple math regarding box sales and modeling a harsh decline (losing 30% subs per month) showed $200mm revenue in like 4 months after launch.  Literally the only unknowns were retail store profit margins (which are said to be quite small, and certainly aren't 50% MSR) and ongoing post-launch run rate.

The link posted in this very thread is EA itself pointing out how profitable the game is with 1.3mm players.

Feel free to keep your arbitrary, hastily-drawn opinion with no basis in facts.  Meanwhile I'll crunch numbers with experience having actually produced games and worked closely with the product managers running them -- and discover the game is profitable independantly even before the EA link confirmed it ("profitable at 500k subscribers" is just about where my uber-conservative numbers crunch put the game 4-5 months out...at which point it became profitable.)

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not. But here is some info on EA aquisitions. You can decide for yourself whether some of these companies are indie.

Who needs a publisher when you can just sell the mmo on steam,

Oh, right. You were. The other guy wasn't. He was talking about them buying up indie game developers.
