Activision Blizzard Financial: WoW Subs Drop to 9.1M

Activision Blizzard's Quarterly Financial Results beat analyst projections due to strong performance of the new installments in the Diablo and Skylanders series. The company is raising its outlook for the full year, in spite of word that World of Warcraft has shed another 1.1 million subscribers since their last report, leaving the MMORPG with only about nine million more paying subscribers than the typical such game: "Second-quarter sales, excluding changes in deferred revenue, rose 51 percent to $1.05 billion and beat the $837 million average of 19 analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Total revenue fell 6.2 percent to $1.08 billion. The company’s “World of Warcraft” multiplayer online game lost 1.1 million subscribers in the period, finishing at 9.1 million."

The funny thing right now is that I actually miss playing WoW.
I miss the first year or two in Vanilla. The interface was pretty rough compared to later, but it didn't really matter to me. My first character was a Night Elf Hunter. It was at least a month, even though I was playing a ton, before I even left Teldrassil, three months at least before I ventured beyond Darkshore. Ahh... those were the days. A world filled with mysteries. Hard to believe I got that feeling of awe and wonderment at my age.

*sigh* I wonder if I'll ever get that again in a game.

Yep, I've been in search of that again myself. Good times back then. It's come full circle for me though. I'm finding so many single player games that bring back that old gaming sense of adventure again. I'm looking forward to giving GW2 a run though.
Me too since its open beta and stress tests. It was fun and crazy. I even blogged about them like http://aqfl.net/node/198 ...

I haven't touched WoW for many years. I am still curious to see Catalyst changes in the game one day!
