Warhammer: Wrath of Heroes to Close
A producer’s letter released earlier today confirmed that Mythic Entertainment will be closing down the experiment that was Warhammer: Wrath of Heroes. The game has been enduring in a year long beta test that seems to have not caught hold enough to be a profitable long term venture. The Producer, James Casey, had the following to say:
“Launched in Beta just over a year ago, the free-to-play battle arena version of Warhammer Online was a grand experiment. We were able to test new server technology, learn more about the free-to-play market, and engage in endless quick, down and dirty, three-way battles any time of day or night. On all of these fronts, we were able to make great inroads and insights and deliver a fast and frenetic game.
As a producer for this game from the start, I am proud of the hard work and effort that made the game possible and I feel sad that it is not able to carry on. I think we created something special and I would not trade the time creating it or playing it (on all those Friday Fight Fests and anonymously almost every day) for anything.
I hope that those who have played it at any time in the past will stick through to the end, enjoy the special pricing so you can try out everything before it goes, and try out a few of the special things that were still in our pipeline.”
