Blizzard just mentioned that this morning they reached 11 million subscribers and this number was reached while the expansion was in beta testing. There’s no doubt it’ll climb once the much-anticipated expansion is released. It’s still scheduled for a 13th of November release.
WoW is not new to success. It won best-selling PC game in 2005 and 2006 and its first expansion, The Burning Crusade became the fastest selling PC game of 2007, selling 2.4 million copies in just 24 hours, and million copies in a single hour.
The sales team must have had a field day.
CEO and co-founder of Blizzard, Mike Morhaime says that they are “..fully committed to responding to that enthusiasm with a high-quality constantly evolving gaming experience.” Mike has every reason to want to keep his customers pleased, what with cash that this MMORPG is raking in.
