WoW Reaches 8 Million Subscribers

January 12th, 2007 . by jb

World of WarcraftBlizzard's MMO-lite has created the largest subscriber base in MMO's to date.

Interestingly enough, the breakdown of locale looks something like:

    China – 3.5 million users
    North America – 2 million users
    Europe – 1.5 million users
    Misc – 1 million users

Everyone knows that the Chinese gobble up MMO's like candy, so there should be little surprise there.  What is surprising is how well WoW is taking with the rest of the world.  Through WoW, there have been other phenomena that have been created to idolize the game.

From a South Park episode, to a WoW specific dating site, to even WoW-porn, World of Warcraft is in the eye of the public.

With the upcoming release of the expansion pack coming, one can only imagine what madness will result.
