WoW lost nearly three million subs in three months
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Blizzard behemoth World of Warcraft loses a bunch of subscribers, the internet loses its mind, and we lose a lot of sleep policing the comments of the corresponding news article.
Activision-Blizzard’s latest earnings report says that WoW is down to 7.1 million subscribers, which is 2.9 million less than the 10 million reported at the end of 2014. Activision-Blizzard also reports downturns in net revenue and net income for the quarter ending March 31st, 2015 when compared to the same quarter in 2014.
On the plus side, net revenue from digital channels clocked in at a record $538 million, which accounts for 76 percent of total revenue.[Source: Gamespot]
