Executive Producer and Creative Director Craig Morrison of Funcom, the Norwegian Game Development Studio behind such games as Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, and upcoming The Secret World, decided to give his two cents on why Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a success.
Following the announcement of The Old Republic release date, Craig Morrison wrote a very interesting article on his personal blog here. Talking shop, Craig Morrison lets loose on why he thinks Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a financial success, “The game will most likely sell extremely well out of the gate, Almost certainly the most successful first month sales of any MMO ever, and probably by a wide margin.”
Morrison discusses why current MMO followers and players could be basing their “opinions on assumptions that are quite simply well out of date.” He points out the fact that World of Warcraft was a game released in a very different gaming environment, and that he wouldn’t be surprised to see subscriber numbers in the millions.
So what are your expectations for Star Wars: The Old Republic? Do you think it will be a success?
