Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning's lead developer steps down

Keaven Freeman, the lead developer for Mythic Entertainment's subscription-based MMO Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, has left the company to "explore new growth and new career possibilities," according to a post published today on his blog.

Freeman has worked for Mythic since 2007, and took his farewell blog post as an opportunity to reflect on his time at the developer. He is particularly happy with his interaction with the game's community over the last years.

"Being more collaborative with the players resulted in some amazing development cycles," Freeman wrote. "I'm by no means saying everything was perfect — there was a lot I could have done better, in hindsight, but I think we really managed to take some giant steps forward as well, as non-perfect as those steps may have been."

Though he stopped short of disclosing his post-Mythic plans, he wrote he'd see Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning players "on the battlefield."
