The world’s number one subscription-based MMORPG still sitting pretty at 10.2 million subscribers.
Last August we reported that Blizzard was facing a mass exodus of players in the world’s most popular MMORPG with player numbers falling by 1.1 million between March and August 2011 to 10.3 million – it seems that this year that number has stabilised with only 100,000 cancelling their monthly fee.
In similarly positive news for the developer/publisher, the call also confirmed that 1.2 million players have signed up for World of Warcraft’s annual pass – no doubt helped by the promise of a ‘free’ copy of Diablo III and beta access to forthcoming expansion Mists of Pandaria. To put that figure in perspective that’s near enough the same amount of gamers who are currently playing BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic, according to a report we penned earlier this week.
All things considered things are looking very rosy for Blizzard Entertainment and it’s only going to get better for the conglomerate as Diablo III launches exclusively on PC this coming Tuesday.
Who says it’s hard to stay at the top…
