Paradox are experimenting with a subscription service to play Europa Universalis IV and its DLC

Paradox Interactive, the publishers of games from Crusader Kings to Cities: Skylines, have settled into a familiar and successful model: release a game then, rather chase it with a sequel, spend years expanding it with free content updates and paid add-ons.

Minecraft To Introduce Subscriptions, Y’know, For Kids

I think I'm right in saying that we all often worry about how Minecraft could possibly make any money.

Level Cap: World of Warcraft Subscribers Hold Steady

Oh what a difference a few months can make. When last we checked in on World of Warcraft's green, red, and cow-colored masses, things were looking grim - or, well, as grim as they can look when you have over 10 million subscribers. But, rolling hills once rife with freshly rolled alts, that number was a far cry from the 12 million of 2010. One…
