Speaking in an earnings call following the release of third quarter financials yesterday, Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime said that those leaving World of Warcraft for competing MMOs have a very strong chance of ultimately returning.

According to the exec, of players trying Age of Conan, 68 percent came back to World of Warcraft, with the figure for people having a go on Warhammer Online a lesser 46 percent.

There’s no escape. Well, there is for some. Kind of.

Thanks, Joystiq.
