Blizzard: World of Warcraft Has Stopped Growing


Posted February 11, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

World of WarCraft: Cataclysm

The incredible expansion of World of Warcraft that began on its launch day in 2004(!) has ended. According to Blizzard's Mike Morhaime, WoW's subscription based has been hovering at around 11.5 million users since 2008.

How do you move the World of Warcraft needle? 1) Get more Chinese people to subscribe. Many of WoW's subscribers are in China, but right now, the "Lich King" expansion has yet to be released to the Communist country.  Surprise: governmental regulations are causing some issues, but they'll hopefully be resolved soon. 2) Release another expansion for the West: Cataclysm is coming later this year.

Personally, I'm not going back to Azeroth, but only because I like it too much, and I just don't have the time I'd need to really give it my attention. What about you? Are you playing WoW? If not, what could make you give it a try?
