SWTOR may have had 2 million subs at one time, sure. How many subs does it have now? How many subs did they bleed after that initial 3 month period? SWTOR was not a success. How are SWTOR's 4 servers doing right now? Are they stable? The last sandbox games that were popular were SWG and EVE. WoW was released shortly after that, and subsequent MMOs have emulated WoW to try to catch lightning in a bottle again. To me, that says more about trying to emulate WoW than it does about sandbox games. Bolded part is just ridiculous. Really?
