Speaking in an interview with GamesIndustry International, Electronic Arts executive Frank Gibeau said that the software publisher plans to back its licensed sci fi MMO in any way necessary to keep the title live on servers.
Gibeau said that EA is proud of Star Wars: The Old Republic, and that they feel the game has what it takes to stay around for at least a decade. EA will make the necessary changes and adjustments to both the game and its business model to ensure the future success of Star Wars.
The advent of free-to-play and browser based MMOs, in conjunction with the AAA subscription games also competing for market, makes the MMO genre a difficult playing field to dominate. Luckily for fans of Star Wars: The Old Republic, EA is aware that they may need to look at a free to play model and they claim to be willing to do so in order to keep the game up and running.
