Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will be shutting its doors come December according to a new post on the official website. Developer Mythic has revealed that the closure is not due to the MMO's stagnate player base since its rocky launch, but instead 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 official statement.
"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. From all of us here at Mythic we thank you again for your dedication and support over the last five years."
Producer Carrie Gouskos also revealed a very touching reflection on the work that Mythic has created with Games Workshop's Warhammer IP, which you can read in full over here.
