World of Warcraft’s Subscriptions Dwindle Down to 7.7 Million

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria
Blizzard

It’s no doubt that World of Warcraft has been a behemoth in the massively-multiplayer online role-playing game realm over the past few years. But it’s also not news that its subscription numbers have been going down since its peak in 2010

According to Polygon, Activision Blizzard CFO Dennis Durkin said that World of Warcraft has lost 300,000 subscribers in the last three months, bringing their total to 7.7 million subscribers.

The game’s peak for subscriptions was 12 million in 2010. Last year, the game had about 10 million subscriptions, thanks to the release of Mists of Pandaria, the most recent expansion of the game that sold 2.7 million copies.

Blizzard did not hold its annual convention, BlizzCon, in 2012, but perhaps it will release new information at this year’s BlizzCon that might help boost subscription numbers again.

Let us know what you think of the amount of subscriptions World of Warcraft has now and whether or not you think they’ll improve.
