World of Warcraft

Activision/Blizzard has announced their subscriber numbers for WoW have declined since February. Previous numbers were at 9.6 Million subscribers, and they are now down to 8.3 Million. There is still a large amount of people playing WoW and only time will tell if this is just fallout from those who jumped on for the expansion, or that players are moving on. It’s also about the time that the 1-year promotion has expired for users to get Diablo 3 for free. Another expansion Blizzard?
