World of Warcraft Expansion Sells 2.7 Million Copies In First Week
Following the September 25 global release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that 2.7 million players have already joined the fight for Pandaria. This does not take in to account any sales in China, which was just released on October 2nd in that country. Mists of Pandaria has also brought the global player base passed 10 million subscribers.
“With Mists of Pandaria, we set out to expand on the sense of fun and discovery that’s always been at the heart of World of Warcraft - in addition to adding a huge variety of new content and features to the game,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “It’s been gratifying to see the results of all of the work we put into this expansion and to hear all of the positive feedback from players so far.”
The World of Warcraft development team is already hard at work on the first major post-launch content update. Further details, including features and release timing, will be provided in the weeks ahead.
