WoW is a game of many languages, and I'm not talking about Common and Taurahe. You can play the game in English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Korean, and probably some more I'm not even aware of (Japanese?). And in 2008, Russian is going to join that list of official WoW localizations, with a dedicated Russian team in Blizzard Europe's France and Ireland offices. Mike Morhaime, Blizz's president, had this to say: "Considering the scale and enthusiasm of the Russian community, we recognized that offering a dedicated Russian-language version of World of Warcraft was the next important step for the game in Europe." I don't play on the European realms, so I'll just have to take his word for it, I suppose. That and get used to seeing Cyrillic screenshots from time to time.
