 Warhammer Online  to shut its doors
Warhammer Online to shut its doors
September 18, 2013 | By Kris Ligman




In a letter to subscribers today, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning developer Mythic announced the game's closure, effective December 18th, 2013.

"Unfortunately, as with all licensing deals they do eventually come to an end," the letter to subscribers reads, indicating it would disable auto-renew on accounts and discontinue the sale of three month game time codes, in anticipation of the closure. "We here at Mythic have built an amazing relationship working with [Warhammer IP owner] Games Workshop... We thank you again for your dedication and support over the last five years."

Mythic closed its previous Warhammer MMO, Wrath of Heroes, in March of this year.

"Warhammer despite its flaws was a valiant effort into the MMO space," said producer Carrie Gouskos in a company blog post timed in conjunction with today's announcement. "Some of the most talented people in gaming made Warhammer possible. They worked insanely long hours, and they put their heart and soul into trying to make this beautiful IP a living and breathing universe."
