Over 12 million players have subscribed to World of Warcraft ever since its release in 2004.
Blizzard has announced that the number was reached due to the release of Wrath of the Lich King in China.
“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, Blizzard’s co-founder.
“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: Cataclysm is not far from release, and Blizzard has announced that it will be released on December 7.
