“Fan reception has been phenomenal.”
Each expansion for World of Warcraft usually sees a huge uptick in numbers, though Warlords of Draenor – the last major expansion for the MMO – didn’t quite result in the highest increase. It’s a different case for Legion, however, and Blizzard has revealed that the reception to its latest expansion is the highest it’s seen in years.
According to PCGamesN, Blizzard revealed at PAX West that, “We knew this expansion was going to be something for the books, but reception has just blown us away.
“The early reviews are coming in, they’re really positive. Fan reception has been phenomenal. Concurrency – we’ve had to check and triple check our numbers, because it’s the highest they’ve been in recent memory. Several years, for sure.”
Though the concurrent player number is fairly high, it doesn’t say anything about whether the number of subscribers – the main source of revenue for WoW – has gone up as well. Then again, Blizzard doesn’t offer subscriber numbers anymore so it’s difficult to know if the actual number has gone up thanks to Legion.
What are your thoughts on the expansion though? Let us know in the comments.
