Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will be taken offline in December

Wednesday, 18th September 2013 21:33 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will be taken offline on December 18, Mythic has announced. The MMO will close shop due to a licensing deal with Games Workshop having expired.

“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,” reads the shutdown notice.

“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.”

Warhammer Online launched five years ago today on September 18, 2008.

Thanks, Massively.

    I am sad to see it go.

    I had fun with WHO.
    The only regret right from the beginning were empty servers too fast; therefore very challenging to PVP or worse to PVE correctly.

    It was a beautiful game and I hope to find Mythic for a next great adventure and hopefully without any external influence.

    Perhaps a revival of Magestorm?

    I love you Mythic, I praise your work!

    @1 – same but yet it was another failed attempt from EA to get into the MMO market. They simply pushed this out unfinished, stripped out so many key features and wondered why everyone left within 30 days.

    EA didnt even learn from it as they repeated the feat when they released SWTOR, breaking new records for having the fastest decline in player numbers in history (1.7million within 3 months!)
