WoW Down to 7.1 Million Subscribers in Q1 2015, New Blizzard Merchandise, State of PvP
Activision Blizzard released their first quarter 2015 results today, and
World of Warcraft is at 7.1 million subscribers
, down 2.9 million from
10 million reported at Warlords' launch
. Earlier in 2014, WoW was down to
6.8M for Q2
(the lengthy break between new content with Siege of Orgrimmar) and increased to
7.4M for Q3
as players got ready for Warlords of Draenor.
Click here to read the First Quarter Presentation.
This is a steeper loss than the first quarter after Mists of Pandaria launched. For
, subs were at 9.6 million after Mists of Pandaria launched in September 2012 with
over 10 million subscribers
The subscriptions from
were not counted in this report as they were launched in Quarter 2.
As for other Blizzard games, Heroes of the Storm is up to 11 million beta sign-ups and saw the release of the Founder's Pack for $39.99, while Hearthstone had steady engagement due to the recently-released
Goblins vs Gnomes
has a summary of the report and the conference call starts at
, which you can listen to at
. Here's their summary of Warcraft:
Blizzard Entertainment had the largest Q1 online player community in its history, up a double digit percentage year over year despite no major launches in the quarter. As expected and consistent with our experience following prior expansions, we saw a decline in the World of Warcraft subscriber number. Subscribers ended the quarter at 7.1 million. World of Warcraft’s revenue performance at constant FX has been more stable, driven by continued strong uptake on value added services, and price increases in select regions, which partially offset subscriber declines, particularly in the East. World of Warcraft remains the No. 1 subscription-based MMORPG in the world.
