Blizzard’s Warlords of Draenor is on track to be a big success

The bleeding has stopped in Azeroth — for now.

Activision Blizzard announced today that Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft (WOW Gold) still holds the top slot in the massively multiplayer online gaming business with more than 7.4 million paying subscribers as of Sept. 30, the end of Activision Blizzard’s third fiscal quarter.

Last quarter, 07 RS Gold had 6.8 million subscribers for its MMO. The company hopes to boost that further next week with the upcoming launch of the World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor expansion. Blizzard usually sees a boost after new content arrives for its flagship game.

“Blizzard’s Warlords of Draenor is on track to be a big success,” said Bobby Kotick, chief executive of Activision Blizzard (that’s the parent company of Blizzard Entertainment), in an earnings call today.

During the quarter, Blizzard Entertainment’s newest franchise, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, exceeded 20 million registered users since its release on the PC and mobile devices last year.

Blizzard is working on an Android version of Hearthstone, as well as a port to the iPhone. Hearthstone is currently available on just the Windows PC, Mac, and iPad.
