Blizzard releases updated subscription figures for World of Warcraft, number of people shouting "you're a wizard" and "you are" at each other poised to reach all-time high.

As the run up to Wrath of the Lich King's release nears a close and people everywhere start fiending for all of the content they've been playing in the World of Warcraft expansion's beta to get out onto the real servers, Blizzard dropped a press release to just let you know that they continue to "run thangs."

Over 11 million people are currently subscribed to the game. That's a worldwide number, including Russia and Latin America, which were recently added to the "let's never go outside again" family of World of Warcraft lovin' locations. The last announcement of the game's player base came back in January, when the company posted 10 million players worldwide, with over 2.5 million of those coming from North America.

Wrath of the Lich King will hit "several regions" on November 13. Not to be an armchair analyst or anything, but I bet that thing will sell pretty well. You heard it here first.
