During Gamescom, Microsoft will show off exclusive game titles including the following: Crackdown, Scalebound and Quantum Break - with all three titles providing third-person action play. Unfortunately, Microsoft wants to see different types of game genres:

 

"More diversity in terms of genre and mechanics, I think it's a great thing for this industry to push," Spencer recently told GameSpot. "So yes, you do find a lot of third-party action games from us, and I do think we should be pushing harder on genre and control."

World of Warcraft subscriber numbers reach a 9-year low

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Aug 5, 2015 11:24 am

Activision Blizzard may have released its latest "Fury of Hellfire" expansion on June 23, something that the publisher says "helped stabilize the subscriber number towards the end of the quarter" but subscriber numbers on World of Warcraft are dropping to new lows.

 

world-warcraft-subscriber-numbers-reach-9-year-low_01

 

World of Warcraft now has 5.6 million subscribers as of June 30, but Blizzard President Mike Morhaime noted that the Warlords of Draenor expansion had more players returning to the game than any previous expansion. Morhaime also noted that the company is aiming to increase the pace of content going into the future to keep gamers' interest high on the game, and he's also confident that the World of Warcraft movie being released next year will bring in more players.

 

When the Mists of Pandaria expansion was released, World of Warcraft subscriber numbers dropped to 6.8 million, but with an exodus of an additional 1.2 million players, World of Warcraft is definitely not as popular as it used to be.
