Battlefield 3 Premium Has 1.3 Million Subscribers, Officially More Popular Than SWTOR
After receiving word yesterday (through EA’s financial call) that Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic would be adopting a free-to-play model this November, and that it had officially fallen below the one million subscriber mark, it comes as a weird a surprise that another EA-supported service is currently soaring in popularity.
Battlefield 3: Premium had an incredibly successful launch and has since continued to succeed, boasting over 1.3 million subscribers to date. This can also be attributed to EA’s recent announcement of reaching 21 million members on its Origin digital distribution system.
So there you have it – there are officially more people continuously playing/paying for Battlefield 3 than there are customers for THE definitive Star Wars MMO.
The tables, they have turned.
