Last year Mythic launched its long-awaited MMO, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. In the run up to its release, many people, fans and professionals alike, claimed this was going to be the game that finally pushed Blizzard’s World of Warcraft off the top of the MMO charts for good, the fabled ‘WoW killer’. With the vast WAR lore behind it, not to mention the team that created Dark Age of Camelot, WAR had a pretty good chance to accomplish something special, but with recent news of job cuts at Mythic and disappointing subscription figures, things aren’t looking good. Did the game fall short of expectations, or was it just unlucky? And will it still be around this time next year?.
