A recent report pegged World of Warcraft’s current subscription base to 7.7 million, which means that 600,000 more subscribers have quit. Back during Cataclysm, Blizzard claimed the decline on China being behind in the release. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case any longer and possibly is a major reason why Viviendi no longer is in love with Blizzard-Activision and is seeking a divorce from them.
Recent news from the Activision/Blizzard world is that they finally are separating from Viviendi. Obviously, the damage has already been done but the real question is what will happen here after?
