World of Warcraft continues to be the most popular game in the world with Blizzard announcing yesterday that the game now had over 8 million subscribers. The breakdown shows that China has 3.5 million players, North America has 2 million players with Europe winning the bronze medal with 1.5 million players. The rest of the players come from other smaller areas around the world.

Mike Morhaime, president and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment was in triumphant mood:

“We’re ecstatic that the World of Warcraft community has continued to grow steadily since we launched the game. This milestone wouldn’t have been possible for us to achieve without the incredible support of our players.

With the release of our expansion pack, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, coming next week, we’re looking forward to welcoming more players to Azeroth and offering even more quality content for our community to enjoy.”


We previewed the expansion pack a few months back and have to say it looked pretty nifty. With its release, World of Warcraft will undoubtedly only gain further in popularity.
