Talk of PC gaming’s decline is “dead wrong”: Morhaime

Speaking to Eurogamer, Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime has added his voice to an increasing band of developers and publishers emphatic that PC gaming isn’t on the wane.

“I think that it is just completely dead wrong to think about the PC gaming market and conclude that it’s a declining market,” he said at the Worldwide Invitational last weekend.

“It is far from declining. If you look at the numbers, there are probably more people playing games on the PC than any other platform. More than there ever have been before. If you look at the revenue, it’s also growing. It’s only not growing if all you’re looking at is PC retail, and even then, I think it’s just flat, I don’t think it’s declining very much.”

It’s pretty hard to argue with 10 million WoW subs. Full interview here.
