Morhaime said, “The support and enthusiasm that gamers across the world continue to show for World of Warcraft reaffirms our belief that it offers one of the best entertainment values available today”. He also assured that Blizzard is as committed as ever to taking the WoW game to new heights, and they look forward to demonstrating that with Cataclysm expansion launch this coming December.
