Star Wars: The Old Republic won't suffer from the same server issues seen in Battlefield 3, according to EA Label boss Frank Gibeau.

Speaking at EA's Q2 investors call yesterday, Gibeau explained The Old Republic's server is set up in an entirely different configuration than that seen in Battlefield 3 and therefore won't see the same results, VG247 reports.

"It's a PC-only configuration and one that we have full control over. and we're very confident that Star Wars will be a solid launch."

Describing the success had in pre-orders of the MMO, Gibeau went on to say: "They're the highest pre-orders that we've ever had on a PC game so we're feeling very good about the momentum and consumer demand out there.

"In addition to that, we really haven't set the expectations for what the subscriber levels are going to be. We're very excited about the potential of the game coupled with the mass-market license like Star Wars. But as we get closer, that will be information that we can communicate further."

It has already been suggested by analysts that the MMO will hit 3 million in sales this year alone.
