World of Warcraft has recently reached 11.5 million players world wide! That is an extraordinary number considering the monthly fee to even play the game. That’s a profit of at least $50 million a month (I’m not too sure of the monthly fees). 11.5 million people out of several billion in the world. That’s a pretty large percent of the population playing a single game if you think about it.
Included in this 11.5 million are the 4 million copies of the Wrath of Lich King in it’s first month! Blizzard is making a lot of money, and churning out hit after hit. If they keep up this rate they could make a system. Doubtful, but hey, I can dream.
