World of Warcraft : Subscriptions Drop Significantly in Latest Financial Report

Posted Aug 05, 2014 by Suzie Ford

The latest Activision Blizzard financial report has been released. The report indicates that profits are up generally but that World of Warcraft has seen a precipitous, if typical, subscription drop off, now numbering 6.8M, down from 7.6M in Quarter 1. Blizzard has attributed the reduction to a typical end of expansion lifecycle. The new report also indicates that over 1.5M copies of the Warlords of Draenor expansion have been preordered and that Diablo 3 has sold over 20M copies.

  • As of June 30, 2014, Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo III: Reaper of Souls remained the #1 PC game in dollars in both North America and Europe and, including its expansion and digital sales, Diablo III has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide across all platforms since its release in 2012.³ Activision Announces Q2 2014 Earnings Results Page 3 of 7
  • As of June 30, 2014 , Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft remains the #1 subscription - based MMORPG , with approximately 6. 8 million subscribers . There was a decline in subscribers quarter over quarter, which was disproportionately concentrated in the East and was similar to the seasonal decline experienced during the second quarter of 2012, prior to the launch of the most recent expansion later that year.
