Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will only credit those staff members currently working at developer Mythic Entertainment, according to a new interview with vice president and general manager Mark Jacobs.

Talking to website Shacknews, Jacobs stated: "Over the years, we've had hundreds of people work on the game, and we thank everyone who helped us bring our Warhammer passion to life, but only current employees that have continued until the end will be credited in the final game."

The same report quotes an unnamed ex-Mythic employee, who is said to have worked on the game for three years, as claiming that, "I was told they made sure to not include anyone in the list who was not at the office the day of the credit list creation."

The issue of proper accreditation has previously been raised over games ranging from Capcom’s Wii version of Okami to Rockstar Games’ Manhunt 2, with particular controversy over non-crediting of employees who worked earlier in a game's development span.

The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) is currently working on a crediting standard for the industry, although not all publishers and developers are IGDA members.
