You guys haven't included marketing costs for the game. And no ongoing costs for the first 11 months? Development costs are only part of the equation. Your link is for development costs only.

Here's a full all-in estimate...

500 million

Not to mention the sub revenue estimates I gave you we're the most they could possibly have gotten.

None of us know for sure, but I'm sure if the game was profitable they would have not gone to F2P and stayed with their subscription model. Or got rid of most of the senior guys involved with this fiasco.

I've been through your link 2 or 3 times and I don't see any $500 million figure.

Not that I want a pony in this race, but here it was "“I think it’s safe to say that the total all-in investment in ‘Star Wars’ is probably approaching half a billion dollars,” Creutz says."

Ah. Yeah, smells like one of those Pachter-like wild guessers. If EA was saying the game would be acceptably profitable at 500k subs, then it didn't cost them half a bill. That would take ages to pay back, and that's not how EA does business.
