The Potential for 3 Million Sales - Star Wars: The Old Republic - MMORPG.com

According to an analyst report from The Cowan Group, Star Wars: The Old Republic could sell as many as three million copies when it is released later this year. The analysis compares SWTOR to World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2, each of which sold over four million copies worldwide.

Doug Creutz and Jason Mueller of Cowen and Company noted that strong preorders of the title on Amazon suggest that The Old Republic is trending "well or better" than StarCraft 2 and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, both of which sold over 4 million units each.

The analyst revealed that it now estimates The Old Republic will sell roughly 3 million units in its first year, up from its original estimate of 1.5 million units. It also believes that the game will see around 2 million subscribers in total during the first year of sale, up from an earlier estimate of 1 million.
