Well I have some good but mostly bad news for anyone who liked and followed MMOData.net.
v4.1 will be the final version of MMOData.net, and MMOData.net will close down on June 2014.
That's right I am closing shop.
The biggest reason is that it is getting increasingly difficult to get any useful numbers. Also many of the subscription based MMORPG's went free to play, and their companies tend to not give out useful active accounts numbers.
As for the only growing subscription based MMORPG left, EVE Online, I no longer receive subscription numbers. CCP no longer responds to my requests.
It is a shame really, I doubt that their numbers are declining, but I lost a bit of confidence in CCP, I hope they will give out useful numbers to the public on a consistent basis.
A bit of better news for some of you, because I am closing down the site in 6 months, I will make the complete excel of the MMOData charts available for download. This includes the exact datapoints and their sources or estimate information.
Well that's it, I hope most of you enjoyed the MMOData charts, and perhaps someone will pick up where I left off.
