The Warhammer licensing deal with Games Workshop expires this year for EA's Mythic and with no plans to renew the contract, MMO Warhammer Online is for the chop. It shuts down this December.
The MMO has been running since 2008 and saw huge initial subscription numbers but hit continuous decline shortly thereafter. Auto-renewals are now disabled.
You can no longer purchase three month time cards either as EA Mythic start closing up shop for Warhammer Online. The official end date is December 18th.
"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,” said the team. “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.”
Producer Carrie Gouskos added, "...some of the most talented people in gaming made Warhammer possible. They worked insanely long hours, and they put their heart and soul into trying to make this beautiful IP a living and breathing universe.” Mythic at one time became BioWare Mythic before switching back again.
