Star Trek Online Has “Over 100,000 Subscribers”

While speaking about Cryptic Studios, the company’s chief operating officer Jack Emmert revealed that its latest game, Star Trek Online, has more than 100,000 subscribers.

Emmert revealed the figure during an interview with The Big Freaking Podcast, while talking about the game’s reception when it launched last month.

Despite the huge IP, or maybe because of it, the game didn’t live up to many fans’ expectations, as reflected by the number of subscribers; 100K might sound alright, but when you consider Age of Conan and Warhammer Online are barely getting by with a rumoured 300K each, STO’s numbers must be a concern for Cryptic.

According to BioWare, its upcoming MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic will need at least one million subscribers per month just to break even.

Last month, Cryptic made a press release announcing that it had over one million registered accounts following the launch of STO. What a shame not many of them actually subscribed to the game.
