World of Warcraft swallows 9 million souls

wow 9 milIn a move that won’t surprise people, Blizzard’s MMORPG World of Warcraft has grown over 9 million subscribers. If that doesn’t make your eyes boogle out of your head, Blizzard is also expecting even more subscribers once the game’s first expansion pack, The Burning Crusade, launches in China in the forthcoming future.

Mike Morhaime, President and Co-Founder of Blizzard Entertainment, said, "We’re thrilled that gamers around the world have continued to embrace World of Warcraft so enthusiastically. We’ve worked hard to provide a compelling experience for our players, and we plan to continue updating the game with exciting new content for them to enjoy for many years to come."

It’s an understatement to say that World of Warcraft is a cultural phenomenon. The South Park episode, "Make Love, Not Warcraft" has been nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program and the game will be getting the special ink treatment by being transformed into a full-blown comic book series this coming fall.
