Once the most dominant MMORPG title, World of Warcraft, has been on a downward spiral for a long time. Even though it is still the biggest subscription based game of its kind – as claimed by Activision – it isn’t what it once was.

World of Warcraft is bleeding subscriptions and is at 5.5 million as of September 30. It lost 100,000 subscriptions since last quarter. During the last quarter, subscriptions were at 5.6 million and at the time they were the lowest since 2006.

Warlords of Draenor gave it a boost to 10 million but it looks like the momentum couldn’t be sustained. Activision in an investor release said:

World of Warcraft® subscriptions remained relatively stable, ending the quarter at 5.5 million subscribers. Players are excited about the upcoming expansion, Legion™, which will feature a new class, customizable Artifact weapons, class order halls, and much more. World of Warcraft remains the No. 1 subscription‐based MMORPG in the world.

The release of Legion may give a boost to World of Warcraft subscriptions once again, a movie is in the works too so that may help as well. However, you would have to agree that World of Warcraft is slowly fading.
