Warhammer Online to End December 18th
The apocalypse is nigh, or at least for this little slice of universe. Much-maligned and sometimes even misunderstood Warhammer Online has always barely hung on to life, in the shadow of its competitor, World of Warcraft - but that's not to say it was a bad game. Having been a player for over two years, it was a great game for those truly in love with the Warhammer setting, and it portrayed the Games Workshop license quite perfectly. It is thus a tragic moment in which I have to announce its impending doom.
The official statement by Mythic is thus:
"We here at Mythic have built an amazing relationship working with Games Workshop creating and running Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning over the last 8 years. Unfortunately, as with all licensing deals they do eventually come to end and on December 18th, 2013 we will no longer be operating Warhammer Online. As such we will no longer be selling three-month game time codes or have the ability to auto renew your accounts for three months as of September 18th, 2013. From all of us here at Mythic we thank you again for your dedication and support over the last five years."
Thank you Mythic for a great game, for some wonderful times, and for hanging in there even in the face of unbearable competition.
