Star Wars: The Old Republic : LA: All Business Models on the Table

Posted Sep 09, 2009 by Michael Bitton

LucasArts' President Darrell Rodriguez spoke to the guys at GamesIndustry.biz recently about Star Wars: The Old Republic, and some interesting comments regarding possibilities for the game's business model surfaced during the conversation:

Q: There is a lot of talk about the business model for MMOs - subscription, free-to-play... nothing's been announced for Old Republic yet, so is everything still on the table in that respect?

Darrell Rodriguez: Yeah, we're considering it all, absolutely. You start looking at how different communities, territories such as Asia, actually play games, and we start to consider it all - especially if we want it to be a worldwide phenomenon.

Does this simply mean multiple business models might be used in different territories, or is there a possibility of seeing a different, universal business model being applied to The Old Republic? Hard to say! What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments!

The full interview is available here.
