The number one MMORPG may not be number one for much longer, after it was revealed that Blizzard’s World of Warcraft lost 1.3 million subscribers from February to May, so in just three months they lost nearly 10% of their total subscribers.
And with only 8 million left, they might have to pull a few tricks in order to make sure they keep both their subscribers and their number one spot.
Blizzard say that most of the Eastern part of the Earth dropped of during Q1, with declines in the West a bit smaller, but still there.
Robert Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard said the following about the games future, “And while we do believe further declines are likely, and we expect to have fewer subscribers a year than we do today, World of Warcraft remains one of the most successful franchises in the history of entertainment.”
So do you still play World of Warcraft? Are you one of the 1.3? Or have you not played WoW yet?
