The unstoppable juggernaut that is World of Warcraft has yet again set a new record for active MMORPG subscribers by announcing today they have hit the 10 MILLION mark. The breakdown in subscribers goes like this, 2 million subscribers in Europe, more than 2.5 million in North America, and approximately 5.5 million in Asia. Burning Crusades expansion was also the best selling PC game of 2007 selling more than 2.4 M copies in the first 24 hrs and 3.5 M within a month.
So the question is now, when will this growth finally hit its peak? Well I wouldn’t count on it anytime soon. Blizzard is planning on a Russian version later this year and another expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, so I’d expect those numbers to continue to increase for a least another year or two.
