BioWare has stated that subscriber numbers for its MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic have not dropped, according to a report on PC Gamer.

But while BioWare lead writer Daniel Erickson said subscriptions are not dropping, he explained that the number of concurrent users at peak times has declined. Those light server populations may lead to server mergers, he said.

"Nothing is off the table when it comes to making sure our communities are strong and active on each server," he explained. He said that BioWare is currently doing "anything and everything" to increase concurrent user numbers.

Analyst group Cowen and Company said in a report last week that it believes player subscriptions for The Old Republic have already begun to decline, just months after the game launched.

Cowen's Doug Creutz estimates that subscriber numbers for the game peaked at 1.7 million in February, and that by the end of the current fiscal year in March 2013, the game will have around 1.25 million subscribers.
