Blizzard subscription hit a nine-month high in August following World of Warcraft Classic release

Subscription revenue from Blizzard's recently-released World of Warcraft rose by an estimated 223 per cent in August compared to the month before following the launch of its vanilla Classic version. That's according to SuperData's monthly report, which claims that though this is an impressive increase in spending, it still clocks in lower than revenue brought in by August 2018's Battle for Azeroth expansion.

World of Warcraft was the third-biggest earner for August, rising four places from July's No.7 spot. Fortnite hangs tight in at No.6, while Playerunknown's Battlegrounds makes a return to the Top Ten in ninth place likely due to the overhaul that its Erangel map received at the end of July. Games platform Roblox brings up the rear, remaining in tenth place, the same as the month before. Overall, digital consumer spending across all platforms rose two per cent globally during August to a total of $8.9bn. PC and console make up 38 per cent of that figure, representing $3.4bn, while mobile takes the lion's share of 62 per cent.
“Despite this, total revenue was still lower than the Battle for Azeroth expansion last August,” according to a new global market report from Nielsen’s SuperData. The report also says Pokémon Go was the highest grossing mobile game in the world in August. The title, which has been downloaded over one billion times since it launched in July 2016, generated an estimated $176 million in August, marking its highest earning month in three years.

WoW Classic’s success has, of course, been felt elsewhere. For one thing, Warcraft-related searches on Pornhub tripled in the hours and days after launch, as players found themselves with plenty of time to kill while those queues ticked down. With WoW Classic’s new community apparently here to stay, it would seem that some of the community’s gripes regarding Battle for Azeroth have been forgotten. Now, it remains to be seen whether the game’s next major expansion will receive as warm as welcome.
