You may want to know what the WoW server population is, as the legendary massively multiplayer online role-playing game is well over 18 years at this point, but despite its age and the ongoing issues at Activision-Blizzard, the game is still going strong. World of Warcraft is one of the most famous games on the planet, and the title that popularised the theme park MMO design philosophy that many games have since emulated. Whether you're still playing after all these years or someone who's wanting to dive in finally, here's a breakdown of the current Wow server population.

Currently, the average monthly player base for World of Warcraft stands just under six million, and it's currently gaining players for the first in quite a while. This is likely due to the recent announcement of the game's ninth expansion, Dragonflight, which is set to come sometime in the near future.

Expansions always see temporary boosts in the player base, but as the game continues to age, the population is steadily dwindling. WoW may have had its time in the sun already, but that doesn't mean it's ready to fall like Icarus just yet, and it's still doing incredibly well in comparison to other MMOs.
