It'll stay subscription based as long as it remains popular. It's subscriber count is still insane and it'd have to be a quarter of what it is currently before it'd go f2p imo.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

There is really no reason for them to turn it F2P while they can still pull 7 to 10 Million subscribers.

At most, within the next couple of expansions, you could probably expect Vanilla to go F2P but no further content than that.



It would only ever happen if it's subcription numbers dropped to a significantly lower level than they are now. I just can't see that happening any time soon.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I like the vanilla idea.. Or maybe they could raise the free time from up to level 20 to level 30 or something like that.

Maybe one day but it won't be anytime soon considering how many players still play that game

Sure it will. Once it drops down to 1 million subscribers.



I never could play the game long enough to even get to level 20 without getting bored... So it basically is free to play for me



No, they will shut it down before then....



It is near the end of the end....

Basically will only go f2p if they somehow messed up so badly that they drop to 500k-1m very rapidly.

They will maybe release a new WC or WoW and WoW would still be sub as long as it is above 1m subs imo.
