Personally, I haven’t logged on in months… I also don’t have any desire to… the game has, sadly, become boring and has little motivation for me to keep playing. That will sometimes happen after doing something so much for over a decade.
Anyway, the latest Acti-Blizz report says they’re laying off hundreds of employees (while the CEO rakes in a sweet bonus, of course) and the blame seems to fall on Overwatch and Hearthstone under performing. WoW doesn’t seem to be mentioned (other than a few quips about BFA not being a well reviewed expansion)
I think the thing to consider is that even if WoW goes down to 1 million users (which I don’t think it will) it will still be a successful entry in Activision’s eye.
What will be interesting to keep an eye on is how Activision responds if EA’s Apex Legends continues this meteoric rise and dethrones Fortnite permanently. I can see Activision pressuring Blizzard to come up with an alternative to that, since they lost Bungie, and in turn pull a lot of developer talent away from WoW.
