94% of MMO Subscriptions are Fantasy Games

Posted Apr 22, 2010 by Michael Bitton

94% of MMO Subscriptions are Fantasy Games

A breakdown of online gaming statistics over at OnlineMBA reveals, among other non-MMO related things, that 94% of MMO subscriptions are to fantasy games, leaving only a teensy tiny (3.7%) portion to other genres such as sci-fi/superhero.

It's no secret to most of us that the MMO genre is largely dominated by fantasy games, but it is always interesting to be able to put a number to such things. Fortunately, many of the most highly anticipated games coming over the next few years are decidedly non-Fantasy, possibly marking a change for the genre as a whole.
