World of Warcraft: Subscribers Fall to 11.1 Million, Patch 4.3 Coming This Year

Blizzard has held it’s latest earning call and has announced that World of Warcraft subscriber number have dropped once again, this time by another 300,000 to 11.1 million players.

However the company was keen to focus on the positives, including the launch of Cataclysm in China, the launch of WoW in Brazil and the rise in the number of starter accounts created since the trial was relaunched earlier this year. Mike Morhaime also let slip that Blizzard is currently working on patch 4.3 which will be released later this year, promising more content, including new raid and dungeon content and that it will be the largest content update since Cataclysm. If this is the case then I’d expect to see the PTR hit shortly.
