We Found the WoW Killer

Gamestatics - "Activision Blizzard announced over the weekend that the World of Warcraft subscription numbers continue to be in decline. After 80,000 subscribers jumped ship last quarter, this quarter they found their total numbers dwindle by another 1.2 million people, reducing the king of MMO’s to a “mere” 9.1 million subscribers, which still makes it the most popular MMORPG in the world…

…but the numbers show no signs of improving, even with Mists of Pandara’s September 25th launch date looming." (PC, World of Warcraft)

Ugh, they're not GOING to get better BEFORE the next expansion comes out. People have already done everything there is to do in Cataclysm and are simply waiting to renew the DAY Mists comes out. It's really not that hard to figure out, I barely saw anyone around right before Cataclysm launched, then that night the major cities were swarming with people.

WOW has been around for a long time! New game coming?

You're probably right. They're working on Project Titan.

Wow will never die and i have no idea why, that game messes up your physique hardcore.

Yeah it will. Unless they are working on something fresh and bold, it will. There are too many options now that split everyone's time. Look how big mobas and league of legends is. It is a phenomenon, no doubt, but it will get old. Mists of Pandora may draw some back but it isn't revolutionary. The new Gen is coming and quality is going to skyrocket. But, u never know. They may b working on something absolutely stunning that will once again set the bar. I guess we will see.

Numbers will of course increase once the new expansion comes out. I haven't played WoW in a year and a half but I am planning on checking out MoP, most likely the same as millions of other former WoW players.

It even pains me a little to admit it after Diablo III, but I am still interested in seeing what's new in the game I spent years of my life playing.

Or it could be because of people getting burned out from DS without anything else to take their time away before MoP comes out. Or the new laws in China about MMOs.

Some people just don't think before they write, do they?
