Since Neverwinter doesnt have its own board yet I am posting here. So, in the same conference call where it was announced STO is going F2P it was also announced that Neverwinter will use the F2P model as well.
Here is the weird part: there is actually a typo in the written transcript. It reads:
"So I want to emphasize is that NEVER WE'VE DONE a free-to-play model game, so we’re going to launch this game in US and also in China,"
You can use the "find" function in your internet explorer and search the word "emphasize" to find this specific quote.
Of course, the above words "never we've done" makes no sense because PW has done plenty of F2P games.
What he actually said in the audio recording is that NEVERWINTER NIGHTS will be a F2P game. Hear it yourself at around 52 mins into the recording(or 111:30ish if you hear the music at the beginning):
