It's that time of the month again and we have calculated the May concurrency numbers provided by the CensusPlus UI Addon.
May continued to show a decline in concurrent player activity, which is not unexpected. With Sunwell having been opened a few weeks now, Age of Conan having been released, and a couple of weeks yet before Arena Season 4 debuts, there isn't much to keep many players coming back for more.
With Season 4 coming out soon, I would expect to see a bit of an uptick, and we'll see if it is enough to level out the inevitable decline as more people log on less due to summer and content stagnation.
After Season 4, there is nothing in view to keep folks playing until Wrath of the Lich King is released later this year. With the glut of upcoming MMO's, it will be interesting to see how many players stick it out and aren't stolen away to other games.
