8 million players World Wide

A new milestone for World of Warcraft has been reached. 8 million! YES! 8,000,000 gamers world wide.

The 8 million consists of 2 million players in North America, more than 1.5 million players in Europe, and more than 3.5 million players in China. Those 8 million mean that there are 8 million active accounts.

World of Warcraft was launched in North America on November 23, 2004. Not bad for 2 years and 2 months.
