Looks like China finally gave a helping hand to World of Warcraft. Blizzard has announced it’s subscriber base for World of Warcraft has reached a staggering 12 million people. This is in large part due to the release of the second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King in Mainland China, and also as the world prepares for the December 7 release of the game’s third expansion, Cataclysm.
“The support and enthusiasm that gamers across the world continue to show for World of Warcraft reaffirms our belief that it offers one of the best entertainment values available today,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We are as committed as ever to taking the game to new heights, and we look forward to demonstrating that with Cataclysm in December.”
World of Warcraft has come a long way since it’s release in 2004. The world’s most popular subscription-based MMORPG continues to blow away the competition and does not look to slow down anytime soon. Congratulations to Blizzard on this huge accomplishment.
