Blizzard still succeeding despite World of Warcraft slide

Play Hearthstone for free
There’s no doubt that Blizzard took a mighty hit this past quarter as it lost three million World of Warcraft subscribers in the post-expansion, post-holiday period. And while that definitely impacted the company’s bank account, the good news is that success in other areas is softening the blow.

Picking up the slack for the sub loss are Blizzard’s other titles, most notably Hearthstone and Diablo III. Hearthstone recently crossed the 30 million player threshold, while Diablo III recently began its Chinese beta and has already netted over a million in sales from that market.

By diversifying, Blizzard is pulling away from relying as strongly on World of Warcraft as its primary money-maker. Non-World of Warcraft titles accounted for 40% of the studio’s revenue in 2014, a number that is expected to rise to 50% for this year.


The Dragoon King;

"Let your character be your weapon, your fellow guild members be your armour, your blood thirst be your helmet, and use your boots to make a stand. After every battle allow your shield to be your faith in one another, and return from battle either carrying it or resting upon it."
