WoW celebrates 5th anniversary since the release
Blizzard has introduced a special website to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the release of the game World of Warcraft, which launched the 23rd November 2004. year. In addition, this is the fifteenth anniversary of the Warcraft series of games.
Executive Director of Blizzard, Mike Morhaime, has admitted that he was a bit skeptical regarding the success of this now legendary game.
"When we released the game, we knew that this was one of most massive multiplayer games. It was our first game of this type, but the beta version was more than successful. But back then we had no general idea of how many people would buy and play the game, simply it is impossible to predict the development of any game. "
"That day, 23th November 2004. Year, we drove to the local Fry Electronics games shop, which first had the honor to sell our game. From the heavy traffic we could not even get to one shop. Still remember that feeling. Everything was blocked. Parking place could not be found blocks away, a large number of people was moving to the stores to buy our game. "
This is certainly a great jubilee for all our fans of the game, and certainly we will experience many more such anniversaries said the executive director of Blizzard.
