Blizzard Entertainment's overwhelmingly successful World of Warcraft has reached a new milestone. The introduction of The Burning Crusade expansion pack has helped to push the number of active subscribers to more than 8.5 million users across the globe. Crusade sold through approximately 3.5 million copies worldwide within one month following its mid-January launch.

"We're thrilled about the overwhelming response that we've received for The Burning Crusade," said Mike Morhaime, president of Blizzard Entertainment. "We have worked hard to build upon nearly every aspect of World of Warcraft with this expansion, and it's gratifying to see that players and reviewers are enjoying the new content."

Amazon.comŪ reported that it received more preorders for World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade than for any other PC or console game ever, and Wal-MartŪ also recorded similar record-breaking numbers for The Burning Crusade. According to Gary Severson, senior vice president and general manager at Wal-Mart, "Not only was The Burning Crusade the top-selling item in our electronics department the day it released; it had the best day-one sales of any PC-game launch in our company's history."
