Dota 2 players now outnumber World of Warcraft subscribers

More than 7.86 million players have played Valve's MOBA in the last month.

 

Valve's incredibly successful MOBA, Dota 2, now has more players than Blizzard's genre-defining MMO, World of Warcraft.

 

The official Dota 2 blog is home to a counter tracking the total number of unique players the game has seen in the last month. That counter shows Dota 2's players have eclipsed 7.86 million in the last month--a figure which would put it slightly ahead of the 7.8 million subscribers World of Warcraft had when Activision last reported numbers in February.

 

There is, of course, an important distinction to be made: World of Warcraft players are subscribers, all of which fork over $15 for access to the game every month (unless they elect for a longer-term subscription, in which case they get a discount).
