World of Warcraft subscriber numbers

Diagram is end-of-year subscriber numbers since World of Warcraft was launched in 2004. Having Mists of Pandaria launching in 2012 will definitely boost this graph even more. :)

World of Warcraft subscriber trend

World of Warcraft is really impressive! It took the game 4 years to get to 10 million subscribers, and it's stayed that high for 3 years! In comparison, Norway has 5 million inhibitants, and I don't know how many years that took us... ;) I don't know which numbers Blizzard was hoping for when they started making World of Warcraft, but I would think the numbers are high enough to bring us new content for years and years to come.

Imagine everyone in Norway and their clone playing World of Warcraft...
