Vivendi earning statements announced today hint that Wrath of the Lich King is expected to be released the second half of 2008.

The report on the first quarter of 2008 shows that Vivendi have a revenue of 5.3 Billion Euros, which is an increase of 5.2% compared to this time last year.

Very good operating achievements were offset by non recurring or calendar impacts: the first quarter of 2007 included notably the successful launch of the first expansion set World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (the second expansion set is anticipated to be released in the second half of 2008) and the favorable settlement of a tax litigation.

Details of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King release date are as below:

A comparison of the first quarters of 2007 and 2008 performances is not representative because the first quarter of 2007 included the hugely successful release of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. Blizzard Entertainment's second expansion, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, is scheduled to be released in the second half of 2008. Consequently, Vivendi Games' revenues for the first quarter of 2008 are 24.1% lower (-18.2% on a constant currency basis) when compared to the same period last year. Vivendi Games' revenues was 221 million.

It's really an exciting time for WoW fans, stay tuned to MMOsite for all the latest Wrath of the Lich King news.
