"Our big thoughts about what the game would eventually be internally was, 'Well, one day we might have one million subscribers,'" he said. "And that would be just really successful; [the] pinnacle of success with one million subscribers. Now we've got more than ten times that.

Blizzard is on the verge of releasing Wrath of the Lich King, the MMO's second major expansion.
