EA and Bioware are truly using the force, since Star Wars: The Old Republic has already passed the 1 million mark, according to a press release issued by both companies. They claim that it’s the fastest MMO ever to reach the number.
Not only that but players are also putting in an average of five hours a day in the game, totaling 28 million hours logged. Here are still more crazy numbers. 3.8 million characters have been created, over 1 million of which are famous light saber users.
And in case you are wondering about the Light Side versus Dark Side stats, as it stands now, Sith Warriors outnumber Jedi Knights; 550,000 to 510,000. Plus, over 2 billion NPCs have already died in The Old Republic. Yes, I think it’s safe to say that they have a hit on their hands.
