In addition to the news that Titan may not be subscription-based
, today's Activision investor call also shed some light on WoW
's most recent round of subscriber losses
. Blizzard says that the subscriber loss was more or less evenly split between Eastern and Western markets
, which is to say that they've lost subscribers in North America, Europe, and Asia. However, patch 5.2 and 5.3 both had a positive impact on subscriber numbers and Blizzard is working on making returning to the game easier for players who have left.
While there's been a lot of panic over the subscriber losses, Blizzard isn't throwing in the towel yet: in this call they assured everyone that they're committed to the World of Warcraft playerbase
(that's us!) in spite of the subscriber downturn and other projects like Titan
on the horizon.
