2.7 Million copies of MoP sold, WoW passes 10M Subscribers
Blizzard just published the sales numbers for Mists of Pandaria and it looks like our favorite game is back over the 10M subscribers mark. For reference, the sales number for the previous expansions were:

  • The Burning Crusade - 2.4M First Day, 3.5M First Month
  • Wrath of the Lich King - 2.8M First Day, 4M First Month
  • Cataclysm - 3.3M First Day, 4.7M First Month

During the first week of launch, prior to the release in China on October 2, the expansion had already sold through approximately 2.7 million copies and the game’s global player base passed 10 million subscribers, with growth across all major regions.*

“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.

    Good for them, how long those subs last is a whole nother story though. I can see 500k-1M leaving by January if content is sluggish again though. Only time will tell.

    I've found questing to be very enjoyable bar Dread Wastes.

    Wait until people find out that daily quest without a daily cap is like a job and not like a game and the subs will go down again. I call it.

    Have they released figures on the total number of cataclysm copies sold(not just the first week) by the end of cata?

    I probably don't understand, so this might be a stupid question, but how can they have 2,7 million copies sold when they have 10 million subscribers? 7,3 million subscribers don't have MoP yet?

    Nice for them, hope it'll stay above the 10 for a while. Can't wait to play it in December. =)

    "breaks 10m subscriber" so in other words their previous figures were wrong or am I completely confused here given the previous trumpeted statements of "12 million players", but it does beg the question, 10m subscribers yet only 2.7m sales across EU, US & Oceania.
