Mythic gets Warhammered

MMORPG for PC and consoles.

Mythic Entertainment, creator of massively-multiplayer online RPG Dark Age of Camelot, has secured the rights to produce MMORPGs set in the fantasy world of Warhammer in a new deal with Games Workshop.

"Our goal for this first of what we hope will be many Warhammer-based games is to create the single-greatest RvR-based MMORPGs in the industry," said Mark Jacobs, president and CEO of Mythic.

Games Workshop's Andy Jones added: "Warhammer fans around the world can be assured that our new partnership with Mythic, a company with fantastic credentials in delivering great online games, will result in a truly compelling online experience.

"We are really looking forward to working closely with people who share our passion both for the world of Warhammer and for making games of the highest quality."

Talk of taking Warhammer online first began more than two years ago when UK developer Climax signed a deal with Games Workshop to develop an MMO based on the property. But the project was cancelled last June, apparently due to rising launch costs.

Mythic's first Warhammer MMORPG will be published for PC in 2007.
