MMOGchart.com gets first update in 8 months

http://www.mmogchart.com/charts/

At long last, the new version of my charts and analysis is now online! I don’t have numbers for every game, but there are quite a few updates, most notably to World of Warcraft, RuneScape, Dofus, Tibia, and NCSoft’s various titles. Also included are preliminary numbers for Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Lord of the Rings Online, and Tabula Rasa.

A new look and feel to the site as well, I noticed. I’m glad to see the site back and running, and just in time for GDC too :). I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the numbers, but it’s a hugely valuable service to all of us in and around MMO development to have a detailed comparison like this and to see historically how each of the games fares against its predecessors. Even if 95% of the opinions people form from this analysis seem to be wrong … (remember any of the “no game will go above a couple of million subscribers because the charts show them all stealing from each other and none growing the total market” arguments of yesteryear?).

  1. I am always astounded at how accurate his figures are. I once asked him where he got the numbers and his response was, “Mostly through informal conversations with developers.” At which point I shut my mouth and ran!!
