The forces of Chaos finally declare victory in Warhammer Online

, | News

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is closing down. Mythic Entertainment’s embattled MMO based on the Games Workshop fantasy license will be turned off on December 18th. Producer Carrie Gouskos broke the news in a reflective letter to the community.

Games Workshop has cultivated a world class IP. We were lucky enough to play in their universe for nearly a decade, with five great long years live. However, like all things – our contract has come to an end. Both Games Workshop and Mythic agreed to part ways, despite how hard it is emotionally on us to let the game go. It has been a tremendous honor to work with Games Workshop and even though we may be parting ways, our relationship with them remains strong.

According to a notice emailed to subscribers, players will no longer have the opportunity to purchase three month access codes or auto-renew for three month blocks starting today. Warhammer Online launched in September 2008.
