Analyst firm Screen Digest has estimated that MMO subscriptions grew 22 percent in 2008 and accumulated over $1.4 billion in Europe and North America.
World of Warcraft dominated the sector.
In a report titled “Subscription MMOGs: Life beyond World of Warcraft,” it is estimated that 58 percent of the share of western spending on subscription-based MMOs has amounted to $2.2 billion since 2005.
Free-to-play, micro-transaction-based games were not included in these findings.
By 2013, Screen Digest expects the subscription market to top $2 billion.
