Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning shutting down Dec. 18

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, Mythic Entertainment's massively multiplayer online role-playing game, will shut down Dec. 18, 2013, due to the end of the company's licensing deal.

The development team posted the announcement via the game's official site. According to that post, Mythic will no longer sell three-month game time codes or allow players to auto-renew their accounts as of today.

In a letter to the community, producer Carrie Gouskos outlines her path to Warhammer Online and touches on a few elements that "never saw the light of day." Gouskos also comments on the ended partnership with Games Workshop — the game production company responsible for the Warhammer Fantasy franchise.

"Games Workshop has cultivated a world class IP," Gouskos wrote. "We were lucky enough to play in their universe for nearly a decade, with five great long years live. However, like all things — our contract has come to an end. Both Games Workshop and Mythic agreed to part ways, despite how hard it is emotionally on us to let the game go. It has been a tremendous honor to work with Games Workshop and even though we may be parting ways, our relationship with them remains strong."
