World of Warcraft Celebrates First Birthday
11:49 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

On November 23 Blizzard Entertainment celebrated their one year anniversary of World of Warcraft, their extremely successful MMORPG. In just one year the company went from an unknown in the MMO market to the creator of the world's most successful massively multiplayer online game. To celebrate the milestone, the WoW team examined their favorite community contributions, including everything from machinima movies to fan fiction.

Shane Dabiri, WoW's Lead Producer, thanked the fans for their support and creativity, promising the continued addition of new content such as "The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj" in the 1.9 patch. More information about WoW's first expansion pack, The Burning Crusade, should be released in the coming months as well.

We'd again like to thank you all for forming the most kick-ass community of gamers out there. It's as much a pleasure for us to be a part of this community as players as it is to work on the game as developers. We look forward to celebrating World of Warcraft's upcoming one-year anniversaries at the corresponding times in each region, and we look forward to many more fun- and content-filled years of adventuring in Azeroth.
To view the timeline and check out the official info on upcoming additions to the game follow the links below.
