The game alone supposedly had a budget of $70 million, which is quite a bit less than AAA titles, but it wasn't exactly a cheap game to develop. And like Vision said, there are a lot of FTP games out there, including Planetside 2, which seem sort of similar. I don't know what their projections are, but it certainly seems like they have an uphill climb in order to turn a profit on that side of things. I know I won't be getting it (Or PS2 for that matter since I'm not a fan of those kinds of games).
I'll be giving the show a watch but I'm going in with low expectations...
