Blizzard have proudly revealed this morning that Mists of Pandaria, the latest expansion in the World of Warcraft franchise, has shipped 2.7 million units in the first week of launch. That number is expected to grow when the figures from the China launch, which occurred on Tuesday, are finally calculated.
As a result, World of Warcraft‘s subscriber base has been pushed back above the 10 million mark — still down from its peak of 12 million in October of 2010, but solid growth from the 9.1 million figure most recently released.
While we work to bring you our final thoughts on the game, Blizzard have announced that they are hard at work on the first major post-launch content update, with more info to come in the weeks ahead.
