World of Warcraft surpasses 10M subscribers once again

Found this on neogaf:

"From an interview with Tom Chilton in the Polish magazine "Pixel"."

You peaked at 12m users. At the end of 2015 it was only 5.5m and then Blizzard just stopped releasing the statistics. Could you tell me approximately how many users are paid subscribers right now?

Currently, it's around 10.1m. You know, it's difficult to say what the future will bring. We have an internal competitor - Overwatch but it's possible it'll get even higher than 12mil. There are plenty of potential takers and there are over 100mil WoW accounts.

    Still waiting for a more official source. The fact that the only reference to it was from an article in some Polish magazine is a little odd.

    Wait til the shine wears off Legion (which, from what I hear is happening) then see what the numbers look like.

    They only make enough money for 3-4 mil subscribers.  
    Are you onto something or just on something?

    Polygon reached out to Blizzard directly this afternoon to confirm the number, and the publisher revealed that it "was a misquote or some kind of misunderstanding on the part of the journalist." Blizzard neither confirmed nor denied whether 10.1 million is the actual subscriber number at the moment but simply reiterated that it’s not planning to provide subscriber numbers any more.

    "Our policy for almost a year now is that we do not talk about subscriber numbers, and Tom did not do that with this publication," a Blizzard representative told Polygon.
