    A game like this with such a big name isn't or won't die in a hurry, It needs to have a revamp on game play, housing will attract people to play it again, but the game still needs some hard work in its updates.

    After that happens, or it passes an acceptable point of loss, I would expect a shutdown.
    I read that SWTOR broke even a while ago and is actually EA's third highest source of income from games behind FIFA and Sims. Can't remember where I read it though so take it with a grain of salt. I definitely remember that they made 139+ mil in microtransactions in 2013

    You're a more patient man than me then. The grinding in Archeage was terribly boring and the game is so restrictive with its sandbox. It's like the game's mantra is "YOU CAN DO ANYTHING...as long as you do it our way

    Because it is. As I recall it went into development sometime around WoW's Burning Crusade expansion, and any amount of playtime shows that(Poorly paced questing, no dual-spec at launch, wonky class-balance just to name a few issues.).

    Honestly, I still want this game to do well. But I also want Bioware to stop pretending they know what decent writing is(This will never happen.).

    Oh, SWTOR. If only you took a few pages from SWG you could of been awesome. That and didn't use the typical MMO point and click combat scheme.
    Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

    I remember raising concerns about the combat when it was first announced with trailers and stuff.


    People didn't take my insight too kindly.
    On nights like tonight when no one's around, I turn off the lights, and I float off the ground.

    And I smile like I used to when you were around.

    I close my eyes when I am alone at night and think about a Star Wars game with combat from Jedi Knights/BattleFront and the scale and features of Star Wars Galaxies.

    And yes. It seems SWTOR broke even a bit after going F2P. So minus current development costs theyre making money now.
