Just a quick note that the number is not exclusive of WAR, http://aoc.warcry.com/news/view/81225 Conan passed this number in february as well.

The real reason WAR is posed to have a shot at similar numbers is because of the attractiveness to the pvp community in RVR, and not to flame the game at all, but the very carbon copy approach they have taken to making the game interface, combat, and systems neraly identical to WoW

Exactly. Blizzard may have totally ripped off Warhammer lore to create Warcraft in the first place, but now the favor has been returned.

I don't think anyone expects 10 million subscribers out of Warhammer - let's face it, many WoW players want LESS PVP, not more - but this could very easily be the next game to 1 million, and many of those could come at Blizzard's expense. That's if the game is well done, of course, but it looks like Mythic is aware that they've got to take the time to do the job properly.
