11.5M Subscribers Since 2008, Has WoW Peaked? - MMORPG.com

Mike Fahey over at Kotaku has made an interesting observation on World of Warcraft: the game has had 11.5M subscribers since 2008, has World of Warcraft peaked?

Blizzard President Mike Morhaime discussed World of Warcraft's stability during today's 2009 calendar year investor call, noting that the game has around 11.5 million subscribers, which is "about on par with last time we announced."

The last time they announced their subscriber numbers was in December of 2008, and despite the release of Wrath of the Lich King last fall, subscriber numbers have apparently remained the same.

So, I ask you then, has WoW peaked? If so, why do you think that is? Let us know in the comments below.
