Have you noticed now when you log, the game launcher says about available enviorenments? Well many people says its a bug about Test Center and Normal servers... Here is my bet.
EA will create a multigame plataform for all their monthly fee games (read SWTOR, WAR, UO, DAOC and maybe TSW) and merge the time you can play any of them in a unique former pass time, pretty like the SONY STATION PASS.
You will pay the 15$ and could play any of their games, so they can make up their shitty numbers, saying they have a player base of X (not revealing how many belongs to each game).
Also this move will bring new life to his dying games, as people will think his 15 $ now worth much more as can be wasted in multiple games.
This is my prediction, lets the time go and see. If not, stills a good idea and EA should make me their new CEO because I'm sure this will work pretty well.
