Activision Blizzard has disclosed the video game had just over nine million paying users at the end of June. That is down from a high of more than 12 million two years ago.
Blizzard said it hoped an upcoming expansion pack would revive interest.
It coincides with a report that the firm's parent company, Vivendi, is about to drop plans to sell its majority stake in the business.
The news was revealed in the Activision Blizzard's second quarter earnings. Its net income fell to $185m - down 45% on the previous year - sending its shares 4% lower in after-hours trade.
