World of Warcraft’s first expansion, The Burning Crusade, was released in January 2007. Unfortunately, China didn’t get to see it until September – eight months later. However, Blizzard, the company behind the smash hit MMORPG, have assured players they are doing all they can to prevent a repeat performance.Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime has said that China will get to play the next expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, as close to the rest of the world as possible, but the process is being held up by red tape.”Our desire is to release in China as close as possible to the release elsewhere in the world,
..We do have to work with getting certain government approvals to be able to do that and so we are working with the government to get those necessary approvals and hope to launch as soon as possible.”Source:
