Warhammer Online Shutting Down December 18th

Mythic is closing the doors to Warhammer Online on December 18th.

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning has had a reasonable five-year long run as of today, the game’s fifth anniversary. Today should be cause for celebration among the game’s playerbas, but instead turns in to one of loss: Mythic has announced the game’s closure, scheduled for December 18th.

It’s been a long and rocky road for Warhammer Online, but the game has retained a small but steady subscriber base along the way. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Mythic’s licensing agreement with Games Workshop has come to an end and will not be renewed.

While fans of Warhammer can look forward to the upcoming Warhammer 40K MMO from Behaviour Interactive, it’s never easy to see a game you love go the way of the dodo. Those experiences and memories are not so easily replaced.

The game’s producer Carrie Gouskos gave a lengthy notice on the Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning site that is well-worth the read for anyone who has invested time into the game, whether recently or a couple of years ago. There are three months to go until shut down. Will you log in and see it off in its final hours?
