April 2008 Update and March Concurrency NumbersApril 15,2008 14:20 - Rollie
It's that time of the month again and we have calculated the March concurrency numbers provided by the CensusPlus
Patch 2.4 continues to prove enough to keep the majority of players still playing. Numbers are largely flat with only a slight overall decline. This comes on the heels of WoW breaking 1 Million concurrent users in China alone
With no major content patches until the Wrath of the Lich King
expansion, it will be interesting to see how many players drift away until then. There are also various other MMO's on the horizon, such as Warhammer Online and Age of Conan.
In other news, WoWInsider is reporting that WotLK is in closed alpha testing stages
. I am putting my unofficial sticker on the calendar for the end of November for a WotLK ship date. Time will tell!
