This year, we’re taking a time-machine back through our MMO coverage, month by month, to hit the highlights and frame our journey before we head into 2016.

August began with the news that World of Warcraft had lost another 1.5 million subscriptions, dropping from 10 million in the months following the launch of Warlords of Draenor. But the month turned around when Gamescom brought news of Guild Wars 2’s free-to-play transition and Heart of Thorns raiding, as well as WoW’s Legion expansion.

It was also the month that Funcom started to look for a buyer, Smed started a new studio, and Infinite Crisis sunsetted. Check out the rest of August’s big stories and editorials!
