500k to Turn a Profit

500k to Turn a Profit - Star Wars: The Old Republic -

According to a new report based on a conference call with EA's CFO Scott Brown, Star Wars: The Old Republic will turn a modest profit with a mere half-million subscribers. Brown offered this assessment despite recent statements that SWTOR has incurred 'significant' development costs. Brown went on to say that anything higher than a million subscribers would bring in significant revenue.

Brown stressed to investors that the costs being incurred now would "essentially turn on a dime" to profits the day the title ships, a date still targeted for sometime after March but before the end of calendar 2012.

Brown also criticized some news outlets for irresponsible reporting on the game's development costs.
