With a drop of 600,000 players reported in July 2013 and another decline of 100,000 by November 2013 , many were curious what "World of Warcraft" subscription numbers would look like this quarter. After all, a new expansion was announced at BlizzCon since then. According to the earnings released today, subscriptions are up again.

A firm 7.6 million were subscribed to the game in November 2013. That number is up by 200,000 to 7.8 million today. "Warlords of Draenor" pre-ordering is likely coming soon considering the boosted level 90 additions to the public test realm. With that in mind, numbers could possibly increase again. However, it's entirely possible that subscriber numbers will even out and steady during this time.

At the beginning of 2013 subscribers were down to 8.3 million after losing 1.3 million in that quarter. At its peak, "World of Warcraft" was subscribed to by over 12 million gamers. Those interested in this quarter can check out the full press release here.
