Recently, World of Warcraft celebrated it 4th (3rd if you discount the beta) year of life and now we have another birthday to celebrate. Yesterday, It was a year since The Burning Crusade was released to the masses. TBC is finally 1 year old.
Released on Januray 16th 2007, selling 2.4 million copies in 24 hours and well and truly taking the gaming world by storm, The Burning Crusade looked set to be a hit, breaking numerous records from release.
World of Warcraft has reached the epic milestone of 9 million subscribers worldwide, and players have discovered the might of the Burning Legion, fought against the allies of Illidan in Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep, and even faced down the Betrayer himself in the Black Temple.
Happy Birthday World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade!
This does however mean that Blizzards aim of a one year cycle between expansions hasn't come to be as we are still awaiting the arrival of the second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King. Hurry up Jeff!!
