WOW subs down by 1.1 million

World of Warcraft has lost just over a million of its subscribers over the last six months, Activision Blizzard revealed on its earnings call yesterday afternoon. Since May, the MMO’s monthly figures have dropped from 11.4 million to 10.3 million subscribers.

The blame, according to Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime, is put on a decline in the game’s Eastern markets.

Can ‘awesome pandas‘ and promises of free Diablo III give the still-massive MMO a boost?
