In the meantime, the announcement for Mist of Pandaria’s launch date might turn this around. Diablo III also covers for this loss as it is one of the best selling PC-games of all time.

For those that have lost the count, the current number is at 9.1 million subscribers. Weather they are active or not is uncertain.
