Player Counts Rise Since F2P Conversion - MMORPG.com

According to a new report at GamesIndustry.biz, Trion Worlds has announced that Rift player numbers are significantly higher since the game's conversion from a subscription title to a F2P title. In addition, sales are up according to the report.

Speaking to Trion Worlds SVP of marketing Noah Maffitt, the [a]list daily discussed the transition of the MMORPG Rift from subscription to free-to-play. "I'm actually very pleased with how the team has executed on it," Maffitt said. "It was a planned transition that's taken months and months to do. They've thought through all the little details very well. We actually saw our sales go up after we announced free-to-play, because we think we have a compelling package around that transition. Our player counts have gone way up, as well. All early signs are good."
