WoW Down to 7.6 Million Subscribers
Blizzard has their Q3 2013 earnings call today, announcing that WoW is down to 7.6 million subscribers. This is down 100k from the last one that listed WoW at 7.7 million subscribers.

  • Blizzard wants to look at more efficient and better ways of providing customer service for WoW. Efforts are being put towards improving the self-help opportunities so that there is less need for players to contact support.
  • Diablo III has sold over 14 million copies across all platforms.
  • Heroes of the Storm will be free to play and playable at Blizzcon.
  • In North America, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm was the #1 PC game for the first nine months of 2013.

    100k is a rounding error. It seems things have stabilized and people can stop freaking out.

    100k we will take it, still Q4 may not be as soft as we would like it to be.

    Still a healthy amount of subscribers. I'm just waiting to see how things turn out at BlizzCon. I really want to see how they plan to do things for the future.

    Well that's a bit less than the guy earlier who was claiming it was down by 1.3 million... before the meeting had even happened.

    As usual with these numbers... it's 7.6m PAYING... that's FREAKING far from the amount PLAYING!

    If it's 2m playing, I'd be surprised... most of the subs are just people that still pay for sentimental reasons as it's hard to cut the cord from something you once loved!
