As we all know, World of Warcraft was first released in 2004, and it became the early production of the MMO era. Even though World of Warcraft was released long ago, the game still has millions of players. Many of them are veteran players for many years. Maybe they are playing more than just games. They contain a lot of good memories and feelings. Regular content updates, such as last year's World of Warcraft classic version, under this continuous expansion update, also attracted many new players to join. So some people may be curious to ask, how many people are still playing World of Warcraft?
But there is no definite answer, because only Blizzard has the Classic WOW Gold right to understand statistics. You know, the last time they released information about their player base was in 2015. Five years ago, World of Warcraft had 5.6 million subscribers worldwide. However, the WOW Classic Gold For Sale time interval is too long, and five years have passed, so it is really difficult to guess the current number of games. Since then, new expansions have been added to the game, and no one can accurately predict the departure and joining of players.
So people will have to rely on third-party statistics, which may not be completely accurate. Data on Statista shows that as of 2020, the number of players in World of Warcraft is approximately 4.88 million. It can be seen that the number of players is declining year by year, and they estimate that on average, about 140,000 players leave each year. So Blizzard managed to release some huge new content updates or expansion packs, they want players to experience a better place in World of Warcraft, trying to retain old players and increase new players.
As we all know, the number of players in World of Warcraft was 5.6 million in 2015, so it has decreased by about 800,000 in the past 5 years, which makes sense. Even with this downward trend, there are still 4.8 million players for the MMO released 16 years ago. World of Warcraft has flourished for more than a decade, and it will take some time before the end of the game. As the general penetration rate of the MMO category declines, only the fact that the MMO ranking will also start to decline makes sense. But the latest expansion of World of Warcraft, Shadowlands, has made huge changes. Although the release time has been postponed, the purpose is to make the new expansion more attractive to players.
Of course, players will encounter more or less powerless things in the classic game of World of Warcraft, such as when fighting with players or bosses. In this case, having a good gear can make you stronger and more comfortable. On MMOWTS, you will find the Cheap WOW Classic Gold you want, where you can get a fair price while enjoying thoughtful service. In this way, you can use very little money to get the gear you want, and the game experience will rise to a higher level.
