According to tweets listening to the call:

- "Solid performance" by SWTOR was a major contributing factor in their F2P generation - Game is "performing well"

- 45% increase in F2P revenue generation, SWTOR F2P and Subscriber numbers are steadily growing and strong.

That's all I have until they transcribe the call, though I would not expect any particularly interesting additional info.

INB4 the "stick a fork it it, it's done" crowd cry about the news that the game is not going to shut down anytime soon.

On topic.. this is fairly significant in that they normally only comment specifically on their top game properties in their portfolio. So it must be doing better then even they expected.

There might be more info during the Q&A portion. Listening now, they seem pleased with SWTOR's performance.

Its great news, though to be fair, SWTOR has always been a hot topic in the quarterlies as a lot of investment capital went into the game (supposedly) and Investors want to know that it was a smart money move. Now they will rest assured that EA knows how to handle the business (though we may thoroughly disagree as consumers on that part, as long as the cash keeps coming in investors don't care what we think about the company)

First question is about SWTOR :P

Just under 500,000 subs, 1.7 million new free to play players. Revenue has doubled. A lot more content planned.

True.. hot topic for the analysts for sure. But remember last summer when EA did not really want to comment on SWTOR to the analysts.

INB4 "but but but F2P players don't contribute financially to the game"
