Now at 7.4 million subscribers.
Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft may never reach the magnanimous levels of success it had before but it’s still the most successful MMORPG currently. There’s been concern about dropping subscriber numbers but recently, the game added 600,000 subscribers for a total of 7.4 million subscriptions in total. Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia noted to investors that this was due to the upcoming release of the Warlords of Draenor expansion.
Warlords of Draenor is significant for not only increasing the level cap to 100 but also in improving visuals, adding new features and gameplay, and other new additions to the game. Ahead of this, World of Warcraft received the Iron Tide update which added the Iron Horde Incursion world event along with character and class changes.
The expansion pack Warlords of Draenor releases on November 13th. Are you looking forward to it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and stay tuned for more information.
