EA has today revealed their latest financial report showing Star Wars: The Old Republic has dropped from last year's reports of 1.7 million active subscriptions to 1.3 million, a loss of 400,000 members.
EA has officially stated that the decrease in numbers is due to a cycling of "casual and trial players", or better known as the "Honeymoon" period of new MMOs. While not all bad news, the financial report did also bring a small hint at the next patch, titled "Allies". There is no word yet as to what will be in the patch, but likely something that can entice those numbers to come back.
In other EA news, the Q4 report revealed a staggering 6.8 million players still engaged in Battlefield 3's explosive warfare, with new content becoming available this May and June. EA's Play4Free brands are also generating roughly US$2 million each week, a staggering amount that just goes to show how profitable free-to-play brands are.
The full Q4FY12 report is available here.
