Wooah! Blizzard are still expanding despite all the threats that intense of the game is fading, updates and expansions are not the strong for their players to keep their subscription and to the fact that there new games killing WoW. Do you know behind the reason why chose Brazil other than other countries? Sorry, I really have this low info about Brazil and not even know that there are lots of Brazilian players.

Well your exactly right, there not doing great subscription wise so there expanding to another country.
They did the same thing in wrath with china, and it boosted there subscription rates by over 1 million.

Rumor has it there may be a version for japan soon as well.
