August Concurrency NumbersSeptember 5,2007 13:13 - Rollie
It's that time of the month again and we have calculated the August concurrency numbers provided by the CensusPlus
August shows a slight downturn in concurrent players. For combined EU and US, numbers are off by about 37,000 players. While this represents slight downward movement, the numbers are still very healthy.
I am a bit surprised that the announcement at Blizzcon did not excite some folks to get back online a bit. Looking forward, with school starting back up in September, I fully expect an even greater decline next month and would expect numbers to hold after the drop until patch 2.3 which will introduce the new 10 man raid zone, Zul'Aman.
All in all, I would not be surprised if numbers continue to dwindle until the release of the next expansion which is arguably still a year or more away. I guess we'll see!
