Fans of the extremely successful MMORP, World of Warcraft, have been eagerly awaiting the release of the upcoming expansion. The current expansion, Mists of Pandaria, has been out since September 25, 2012 and the latest content to have been released in that expansion is already a year old. Needless to say, Blizzard needs to release Warlords of Draenor because right now their players are extremely bored of stale content.

Blizzard staff, Mike Morhaime, Chris Metzen, Ion Hazzikostas, and Brian Holinka will host today's live unveil of the Warlords of Draenor cinematic as well as the announcement of the expansion's release date. According to GameSpot, Activision Blizzard has already sold 1.5 million pre-order copies of the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion – they also report that the game lost 800,000 subscribers during the April-June 2014 quarter. Will the release of the expansion bump up the subscriber count which is down to 6.8 million?
