After two years of development Climax's Warhammer Online was cancelled after which Games Workshop granted its license to Mythic Entertainment. Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is an MMO game for PC and console set in the fantasy world of Warhammer.

Launching for the PC simultaneously in the US and Europe during fall 2007, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is based on Games Workshop's popular Warhammer fantasy world and features next generation Realm vs. Realm (RvR) game play that integrates Player vs. Player (PvP) and Player vs. Environment (PvE) combat into a seamless, cutting edge, massively multiplayer online experience.

"We are thrilled to be partners with Mythic again and build on the five-year relationship and experience that we've been enjoying with their team," commented Ghislaine Le Rhun, Senior Vice President of GOA.

"Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning has tremendous potential and we intend to treat the game with all the care it deserves. Mythic's expertise in building deep PvP features - which guarantee long-term fun - will make WAR a unique game. Add to this the amazingly rich Warhammer universe, epic adventures, humour, and a very intuitive user experience, and you end up with a future blockbuster. We look forward to showing the game to European players."

"The initial partnership between Mythic and GOA resulted in Dark Age of Camelot being the number one MMORPG in Europe for many years." said Mark Jacobs, CEO and President of Mythic Entertainment, "With WAR our goal is nothing less than to take Europe by storm and regain that leadership position in the European market."
