Speaking to MTV at the Wrath of the Lich King launch this week, Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime said that the American subs rate for World of Warcraft won’t be changing in the US any time soon.

“The monthly rate for WoW in the United States has not changed, and we’re not planning any changes to it,” said the exec.

Note the “United States” bit. just to compound the point he was talking specifically about America, Morhaime added:

“I think we’re pretty happy with our pricing in the United States. I think it feels right to us and our players.”

No mention of Europe or Asia there, is there?
