Whether you’re just planning to take a break from your World of Warcraft journey, or you feel like your adventure is finally at its end, here’s how to cancel your WoW subscription. 

In the wake of the lawsuit against Activision Blizzard for allegedly fostering a “pervasive frat-boy culture” within the workplace, World of Warcraft has seen a massive decline in active players.

For many, however, the lawsuit was just the straw that broke the camel’s back. The game’s community has slammed the developers’ Shadowlands’ poor storyline, as well as implementing highly requested changes far too late.


So if the stunning vistas of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV Online, or the opportunity to start afresh in Amazon’s New World are too tempting, here’s how to cancel your WoW subscription.
