A Déjà vu

WoW bloggers have been busy digesting the latest company report of the game’s publisher this week. With some sticking to the usual guessing game of ‘is it dead yet?’ Apparently, the game has stopped growing, and according to Blizz’ CEO (Mike Morhaime) WoW’s current 11.5 million subscriber base remained sluggish in the past 12 months.

I find this a case of déjà vu. You see back in 2008, before the release of Wrath expansion, most commentators reacted in the same guise.

Looking ahead, Blizzard recently launched a new website for Cataclysm (and it’s updated!). The expansion is still scheduled for release sometime in the second half of 2010.
