Elder Scrolls Online apparently has more than 750,000 subscribers

The Elder Scrolls Online: destined for ever fancier gear.

The Elder Scrolls Online has had a lot of problems since launch - duplication bugsgold farmers, and stuck NPCs - but apparently that’s not stopped it from racking more than 750,000 subscribers. According to a report from SuperData, the game boasts 772,374 paying accounts.

That number should only grow with it’s recent move to the Steam storefront.

Nick wasn't a big fan of the Elder Scrolls Online but “When Bethesda Softworks released Elder Scrolls Online,” write SuperData, “the industry took notice as the publisher fearlessly announced a subscription model, rather than going free-to-play like its direct competitor Guild Wars 2(NCsoft). So far, a subscriber base of 772,374 (June) indicates that its strategy is working.”

It’s not just The Elder Scrolls that’s doing well, though. Wildstar, too, has enjoyed lots of players in its first month since release. ”According to Carbine, the game has so far seen “four to five times” as many concurrent users than during its open beta stage.”

The big winner is still World of Warcraft, which managed to make more than $1 billion in revenue last year from its subscribers.

Yup took me a few years of searching, to find that fine balance between attractiveness and female gamer. They are rare but not legendary :)

When we got married I even said to her "Wouuhsssdiing" Achievement Unlocked - She got it :)
