No they wouldn't because of the lifetime benefits players get. They still have a subscription option for a reason ya know lol

A "lifetime subscription" is almost never (if ever) done by a successful game that doesn't, well, suck. If a game has any production value AT ALL they'll want to be making their deserved profit and will charge you at least $12/mo for a subscription.

Just based on observation, of course. I am known to be wrong. ... A lot!

This is pretty consistent. I don't expect that option here because EA needs quarterly revenue for their reporting, not initial one time lump payments that an independent studio would desire.

Additionally there is a point that they lose money on the lifetime sub. LOTOR and STO have already reached that point with their players. No game that has long term appeal and the Star Wars franchise should even consider it.
