More Than 1 Million 'World of Warcraft' Players In Europe

Rich in legend and filled with adventure, the World of Warcraft awaits! For the first time, players experience the lands of Azeroth from a new, in-depth perspective. As heroes, they explore familiar battlefields, discover new lands and take on epic quests and challenges.

“It is extremely rewarding to see so many European players enjoying World of Warcraft,” said Mike Morhaime, president and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment®. “The players have supported our belief in the European MMORPG market, and we thank them for helping us make World of Warcraft one of the most popular games in the world.”

Available in English, French, and German in Europe, World of Warcraft is operated by Blizzard’s local European office. Established in late 2003 and already comprising more than 400 employees and 22 different nationalities, Blizzard Europe – the second-largest Blizzard office in the world – has expanded rapidly to keep pace with the growth of World of Warcraft in Europe.

World of Warcraft has steadily grown in popularity around the world since its initial launch in North America, Australia, and New Zealand last November. Following successful launches in Korea, Europe, China and Singapore, World of Warcraft launched in the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.
