Warhammer Online killed in action

MMORPG from Games Workshop and Climax axed; game's GM calls move a "painful decision."


After more than two years in the studio, Warhammmer Online was suddenly pulled from the development schedule today.

The game's general manager, Robin Dews, posted the following message on the official Warhammer Online Web site.

It reads in part:

"It is with a great deal of sadness that I...inform the community that we have decided to discontinue the development of Warhammer Online and will be closing down this website with immediate effect. This has been a difficult and painful decision but it was taken following a full review of the progress of the game, costs to date and future costs of the project. As a result both Games Workshop and Climax Development Limited, the computer games developer, have agreed to terminate the development project. I would like to say a personal thanks to all of the people who have followed our development over the last few years, your constant support and enthusiasm has meant a great deal to us."
