BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic Lead Designer Daniel Erickson has denied recent claims that the number of subscribers to SWTOR are in decline. Last week, financial analyst Cowen & Company projected that SWTOR's subscriber base would likely be reduced by the end of fiscal March 2013. Erickson, however, says that this is not true.
However, BioWare lead writer Daniel Erickson has now denied that sub numbers are already dropping, although he told PC Gamer that server merging may occur due to light server populations.
"Nothing is off the table when it comes to making sure our communities are strong and active on each server," he explained. He said that BioWare is currently doing "anything and everything" to increase concurrent user numbers.
