No where in that did he say the word "Never". Change the name of the post.
Just like Star Wars The Old Republic... it's a matter of subs nothing else.
Whenever I read a reply to me that starts with, "So what you're saying is..." -- and I've read so, so many -- my first thought is,
"What I'm saying is what I'm saying, otherwise I would've said something else."- Zarhym June 2015
Even if the game dropped to five hundred thousand subs, it'd still be subscription based. It won't ever matter how many subs they have, it'll always be subscription. That simple.
In life, things always come to an end, it's a hard fact... WoW will see its demise soon enough, but as everyone says, "not any time soon", F2P will come whether that dude likes it or not, because WoW keeps losing subs. Why? Because there are a TON of MMOs, and people are finding all sorts of different MMOs to play. Right now I really fancy Neverwinter, now that's a fun game right there. And soon The Elder Scrolls Online will come out, that will probably take a bunch of subs away, because that game looks great! It's an Elder Scrolls game after all. Give it a couple more years, and they'll reconsider...
Activision: It will once it stops being a steady flow of income (Or we'll just pull the plug)
Your post doesn't deserve a slot in my thread! But it would make the perfect coaster for my drink!
