Fantasy MMO Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will come to an end on 18th December, developer Mythic has announced.

This is due to the developer's licensing deal with IP-owner Games Workshop coming to an end. Since Mythic will cease to run the game in December, it's no longer selling three month game subscriptions or allowing players to renew their account for that long.

"Games Workshop has cultivated a world class IP. We were lucky enough to play in their universe for nearly a decade, with five great long years live," said producer Carrie Gouskos in a blog post reflecting on her time on the project. "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."

Despite Mythic and Games Workshop splitting up when the licensing deal expires, Mythic is adamant that there's no animosity between the two companies. "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," Gouskos stated.
