Statistics have shown that The Old Republic could be one of the most successful MMO launches of all time. With 1 million players registered before the launch of the game on December 20th and 140 servers, the game has some very interesting statistics the following coming from the SWTOR site;
Over 60 million in-game hours – roughly equivalent to watching all six Star Wars movies over 4 million times
Over 850,000 Sith Warriors and over 810,000 Jedi Knights created
Over 260 million quests completed
Over 44 million PvP battles
Over 9 million space combat missions completed
Over 3 billion NPCs killed
This is good news. With 1.5 Million paying players, the surge of income will lead to good development and improvements to The Old Republic.
