Blizzard Entertainment announced today that World of Warcraft
has reached 11.5 million subscribers, meaning Azeroth has surpassed
the great state of Ohio's population
. Clearly people were clamoring to see the Lich King's wrath, as the game's second expansion
sold 2.8 million copies in 24 hours
, and went on to sell over 4 million copies in its first month.
Blizzard also stated it's currently hiring
more staff to keep pace with the game. With all the layoffs going around the industry
, hopefully some folks can find a relatively stable job over at Blizzard's compound -- we hear it's made of gold and diamonds.
