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.
