BioWare Bailing Water; SWTOR Server Mergers a Possibility
While SWTOR subscriber numbers allegedly have not dropped, the number of concurrent users online at peak times clearly has, with only one server (Fatman) maintaining a healthy population. Because of this, BioWare is considering server mergers, something fans stuck on “light” population servers have been clamoring for for some time.
BioWare’s Daniel Erickson spoke to PC Gamer about the future of the game, stating that the team is doing “anything and everything” to bring that concurrent users number up — an admission both alarming in its transparency and comforting in knowing that BioWare is trying to deal with the issue.
“Nothing is off the table when it comes to making sure our communities are strong and active on each server.”
He explained that while server mergers are in the cards, they are not a priority — it seems BioWare may still having an ace up its sleeve.
