Beyond the Battle Dev Diary
In an interview posted on GamesTM, Star Wars: The Old Republic lead designer Emmanuel Lusinchi commented on the competition in the free-to-play market. Well, at least they're realistic about it. As he said: "...there are definitely good games out there and good games coming out, so of course all of this competition impacts your plan with what you want to do."
"The MMO market is very dynamic and we need to be dynamic as well," he continued. "Unless people are happy with what they have, they are constantly demanding updates, new modes and situations. So we are looking at free-to-play but I can't tell you in much detail. We have to be flexible and adapt to what is going on."
What this means, basically, is that the developers of TOR are indeed considering going free-to-play. But there are other important factors to consider too. TOR subscribers have dropped from 1.7 million to 1.3 million between February and March this year. In addition, the TOR branch of the BioWare team has seen layoffs, with BioWare's Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk saying: "Sadly, we are bidding farewell to some talented, passionate and exceptionally hardworking people who helped make SWTOR a reality."
In other words, free-to-play might be the only way to go.
