Vivendi, who happens to own Blizzard Entertainment, recently announced its earnings for the second quarter of 2007
. Revenues from their gaming division are up 29% (with overall revenues up 7.4%), with the report claiming these numbers were up due to the continued success of World of Warcraft
. Despite the fact that the game hasn't been growing as quickly during 2007 than it has in the past
(Blizzard's official announcements suggest they're growing at a rate of approximately 160,000 new active subscribers a month compared to approximately 330,000 new active subscribers a month mid-2006), it's still a huge financial success that shows no signs of fading any time soon.
