Subscriptions Plummet to 5.6 Million - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

World of Warcraft subscriptions have plummeted to 5.6 million in Quarter 2, down from 7.1 million in Quarter 1. This reflects a loss of nearly half the subscribers from the launch of Warlords of Draenor in November 2014 when numbers soared over the 10 million mark, and over 1.5 million subscriptions lost since the last financial report was released earlier this year. Even the WoW token could not stave off subscriber loss after being introduced in Spring 2015.

Blizzard Entertainment had the largest online player community in its history, with Q2 MAUsB up 50% year-over-year. Though World of Warcraft® ended the quarter at 5.6 million subscribersC, Blizzard revenues are up year-over-year based on strong performance across the expanding Blizzard portfolio. On June 23, 2015, Blizzard Entertainment released, Fury of Hellfire, one of the largest non-expansion content updates to date for World of Warcraft.Thisnew content helped stabilize the subscriber number towards the end of the quarter. World of Warcraft remains the No. 1 subscription?based MMORPG in the world.

Meanwhile, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and Destiny have combined to generate over 1.25 billion in revenue "life-to-date".
