Blimey. World of Warcraft has pushed Vivendi’s income into the real big league, the company announced today, showing 2007 revenues of €1.02 billion for the year, a rise of 26.6 percent.

Blizzard, publisher of the MMO, accounted for most of that figure, accruing sales of €814 million. WoW moved past the 10 million subs level recently, and has added more than 2 million to that figure in the past year.

This is likely the last set of annual financials Vivendi announces before merging with Activision throughout this year.
