During its recent earnings report, Activision Blizzard reported that popular MMO World of Warcraft had lost 800,000 subscribers in April to Jue 2014. The company reported a subscriber base of 7.6 million on March 31st and as of June 30th, there 6.8 million subscribers on board.

The publisher isn’t worrying though, reporting that most of these subscriber losses came from the East and that they were “seasonal”. There’s already great hype over the next WoW expansion, Warlords of Draenor which will be releasing this Fall and already has 1.5 million pre-purchases till date.

Activision Blizzard also revealed that revenue for World of Warcraft was up, though specific figures weren’t provided. There have been subscriber losses in the past for World of Warcraft – and plenty of competition from the likes of WildStar and The Elder Scrolls Online – but the MMO juggernaut continues to roll on regardless. What are your thoughts on these recent subscriber numbers though? Let us know in the comments.
