How Much Has WoW Cost Blizzard Since 2004?

Kotaku: You run a game for around five years, you can't expect it to be cheap. You've got to run servers, pay customer service reps, pay for marketing, etc etc. World of Warcraft's been running for five years now, so how much has the upkeep cost Blizzard?

The story is too old to be commented.

$200 Mil...

They make that like every single month

Yeah exactly...

They practically give the game away now because the money is in the subscription.

Say what you like about Blizzard, but they have to be respected for the sheer money and scale of their success.

10 million * $15 a month from those 10 mil = $150 million a month

Add in about $20 million from Paid Char. Transfers, Name Changes, UDE income, comics, action figures, other merchandise, and actual new copies of the game bought and they're raking in $170 million every month.

Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 better be kickass.
