The World of Warcraft subscriber base continues to grow leading up to the December 7 launch of Cataclysm, now topping off at 12 million subscribers worldwide. Blizzard attributes the recent Chinese launch of Wrath of the Lich King for pushing the number over the edge.

“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,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We are as committed as ever to taking the game to new heights, and we look forward to demonstrating that with Cataclysm in December.”

Blizzard caps their press push with good news. Due to company and franchise success, they are currently hiring for “numerous open positions.” You can find more information on the job listings here.
