...BUT TO WHICH I WILL PROBABLY NEVER GET AN ANSWER.
1/. When did the game start development? It is rumoured that LA and BW went into partnership as early as DEC 2005 with the failure of the New Game Enhancement in Star wars Galaxy.
2/. If the game did have such a relatively long lead time, why was the game pushed out in such an apparent rush in 2012? And why were so many features that had been long discussed - and would have made the game much richer - dropped?
4/. How much did the game cost to develop?
5/. How much did the game cost to develop AND advertise/market?
6/. Why did Gordon Walton, the lead developer, leave just six or so months before launch after steering the project for years?
7/. How many boxes and downloaded versions were sold?
8/. How many paying subscribers are there now? How many were there three months ago? How many in January?
9/. How does EA now see the future of this game after an - assumed - major drop in subscriber numbers which must mean an associated drop in revenues too?
