New MMOGcharts Released

New version of MMOGcharts released Bruce Sterling Woodcock has tracked active subscriptions to various MMOs for years, and though the data's far from perfect (ever since World of Warcraft rocket-like rise into the millions, developers have become increasingly tight-lipped about the size of their subscriber-base) we have a fresh picture of the market as of last week. As reported by Joystiq: The green line leaping towards infinity is World of Warcraft -- the yellow and red curves, declining slowly, are Lineage and Lineage II respectively. Many of the others stop in 2005, so it's hard to get an accurate up-to-date picture, but the light blue line representing Runescape seems to be finally taking off, cresting the 500,000 barrier -- an impressive feat for a game started by a couple of students. Check out the new charts and commentary at Joystiq.
