Activision has confirmed that World of Warcraft has lost 1.3 million subscribers, meaning the active subscriptions are down to only 8 million. Activision say that the subscribers that have been lost are mainly from the East but some are from the West too. 8 Million is still a heck of a lot of players still and still keeps WoW at the top of the MMO ladder.
Warcraft had 12 million players at it’s peak in 2010, so dropping to 8 million is quite a blow to them, it’s no doubt that after Blizzcon this year subscribers will start to swell again.
Do you think the drop in subs will affect Blizzard? Do you play World of Warcraft or are you one of the 1.3 million? Let us know in the comments below.
