Warhammer Online to Shut Down on December 18

Mythic announces the game's closure on its fifth anniversary.

Early this afternoon Mythic Entertainment announced that it would be closing the doors of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning in a mere three months.

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. 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 3 month game time codes or have the ability to auto renew your accounts for 3 months as of September 18th, 2013. If you would like to read some additional thoughts from one of WAR’s Producer please check out http://www.warhammeronline.com/.  From all of us here at Mythic we thank you again for your dedication and support over the last five years.

If you have any questions please feel free contact us via email at support@warhammeronline.com.

A more detailed notice of shutdown is also available to read on the Warhammer site.

Super sad. Such a fun game w/ so much potential as a free to play game.

Sad to see a game that had such potential bleed out so young. Nearly all of the cool features (I was a late-beta, from-launch player) were matched/exceeded by older games such as WoW and even Everquest... though I haven't quite seen the public quest and loot system from WAR elsewhere yet (granted I don't play a wide range of mmo).

Would be lousy to be a player still there getting shut down.
