World of Warcraft‘s subscriber numbers seem to have evened out between quarter two and quarter three, with only a 100,000 loss.
The game currently sits at 7.6 million subscribers, according to Blizzard, which is down from 7.7 million reported at the end of quarter two. “We’re very pleased with the response to Siege of Orgrimmar, the massive content update we released in September. This update included a huge new raid dungeon with major story elements, as well as a new area to explore and features that improved the game’s accessibility,” Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime stated during Activision Blizzard’s third quarter financial results meeting.
“Flexible rates now allow groups of variable size to participate in the endgame raiding dungeons. Meanwhile, the proving grounds feature trains players to improve at playing specific roles, preparing them to participate in endgame content.
“Player response to the content has been good, and we saw increased engagement that has contributed to maintaining relatively stable subscribership quarter-over-quarter. We’ll continue to invest heavily in World of Warcraft to deliver frequent, high-quality content to our players.
“In terms of the content and developing, we have more resources focused on developing content for World of Warcraft than ever before. So we expect to continue having a long and happy life.”
Blizzard recently filed a trademark for Warlords of Draenor, which is expected to be the next expansion for World of Warcraft.
