It's possible that Disney has the movie rights and merchandising rights without having purchased the digital rights, or that Disney has acquired ownership of all rights, but the digital development rights are currently leased to EA.

It depends on the production value per unit. If the 6 units cost 5 billion to build and then net me 6 billion in revenue then I only made a profit of 1 billion. If the billion units cost 5 cents a piece to make then your example heavily favors the billion units at 5 dollars a piece as it results in a 400% increase in profit.
Numbers are important
Money is important
They are not unconnected in an either or scenario.
If your potential market is small, then you have a smaller potential pool from which to draw income, this is especially important for luxuries such as video games. The larger your potential sales demographic, the more money you can potentially make. Stop trying to act like the money isn't connected to the market.
Probably not. Maybe if the do the expansion right; IE, macros and add-ons.SW:ToR has been in my view a massive shambles. If I was Disney, I would just cut all ties and let the game die. It has been poorly developed and run, and I seriously doubt we'll see a come back!

Current subscriber 7 day SWTOR trial with goodies
The F2P was way too excessive. There was a Tolstoy novel length list of restrictions on what free players cannot do and it was ridiculous. Getting rid of the "you can only have two characters" bs is the first step to bringing the game back. Allowing us use of mailboxes would also be nice.
Free players shouldn't so much be restricted as sub players should be rewarded. Give sub players a boost to xp and keep free players on regular xp gains, things like that.
F2P is just an extended trial mode.
i was not crying in the shower
i just realized how i'll never get to meet darth vader and then soap got in my eye - Kylo Ren
I do wonder now, does disney technically have the power to break ties with EA? after the contract for SWTOR's licensing ends?
Then he created man and we fucked it all up.

They own everything.
Kotor 3 with a SWG online world.
It could happen.
edit: Granted, it would have to be a NG MMO.
The community is done with the old formula.
edit: Oh oh oh! Or a sort of 3rd/fps ground game with a space game online. Sort of a SW: Battlefront Online
Like dust514 ish.

I don't really see them venturing into MMO territory because of development costs alone. They have been making a strong headway into consoles and I would expect it to be more likely that they deliver an Epic Mickey like Star Wars experience for the WiiU before they do an MMO.
And no, this doesn't mean it will be childish, but the gameplay element and use of hardware will be pretty good. It won't be laughable like the kinect star wars.
Picture this: 2 player mode has the person with the nunchuks as a jedi, with a lightsaber and all the wii goodness while the person with the newfangled wiiu remote is their droid companion who can hack things and fight in their own way while using a unique interface on the touchscreen.
Co-op KotOR 3, calling it now.

SW: TOR's nail in the coffin was its horrid F2P model. It had a chance at doing decent with a F2P model but im sorry, haveing to pay weekly to unlock raids, pvp, and hard modes. On top of paying to use purple items. Well EA can go F its self and the horse it road in on.

The word you want to use is "have" not "of".
You may have alot of stuff in your country, but we got Lolland.
