So, they spent over $100 million on WoW. WoW opened in 2004(november, almost 6 years ago). Let's assume the game has had 5 million monthly subscribers(has been more(11 million with China), has been less(when it started)) who all pay for 6 months at a time($12.99/month). That's $64.95 million a month times 12 months times 6 years.

Minus the $100 million for development and not even including what they've made on box sales, that leaves:

$4,576,400,000

4 and a half billion dollars.

It's no wonder all the good gaming companies want to make another stupid MMO and Activision Blizzard wants pay to play on everything.
