Star Wars: The Old Republic hits sales milestone
BioWare has announced more than two million units of Star Wars: The Old Republic have been sold.

Star Wars: The Old Republic has hit a major sales milestone, shifting two million units in just its first six weeks on the market.

The title, which is also the fastest growing subscription massively multiplayer online game in history, has a base of more than 1.7 million active subscribers.

According to developer BioWare, more than 239 million in-game hours have already been clocked up by owners of the title, equivalent to over 27,000 years of time in the game.

More than 20 billion non-player characters have been killed and the amount of credits spent has surpassed 148 billion.

Dr Ray Muzyka, co-founder of BioWare and general manager of EA's BioWare Label, said: "We're truly honoured and humbled by the incredibly strong support from our players who are enjoying Star Wars: The Old Republic."

Next month, EA and BioWare are set to launch the highly-anticipated Mass Effect 3, completing the videogame trilogy and wrapping up the story of the human protagonist Commander Shepard.
