SWTOR Subscribers Decline as EA Profits Soar

EA revealed earlier this evening in its annual financial report that its MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, currently has 1.3 million active subscribers. That's 400,000 less than the last time they reported subscriber numbers in February of this year. Beyond reporting the numbers, EA did not talk much more about SWTOR.

Elsewhere in its report, the company revealed net annual income of $76 million, an improvement on a loss of $276 million in the same period a year ago. Total revenue for the fiscal year was also up at $4.14 billion, from $3.59 billion in the same period a year ago. The company said it enjoyed strong results for retail products including Mass Effect 3, SSX and Kingdoms of Amalur, but a fair share of its revenue came for digital goods and sales.

Total digital revenue for the year was $1.2 billion, up 42 percent from the same period a year ago.

Looking ahead, EA announced plans to invest $80 million over the next 12 months to develop new games for the next generation of consoles, or as they call them "Gen4 console systems."
