Warhammer Online: Wrath of Hereos Shutting Down Next Month
The free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena game Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes (WOH) is going to be shut down on March 29th, based on the shutdown notice on its official site.
The game has been in open beta since its 2011 release but never officially released. And because "the project could not meet its financial goals to be sustained", Mythic Entertainment will be shutting down all online services associated with WOH.
Producer James Casey posted a farewell on the site:
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."
For players who are still rich with gems, make sure you spend them while you can because players' gems will not be refunded according to the Shutdown FAQ. However, the company is at least offering players who purchased and had gems between the first of the year a free month subscription and a chest of goodies in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
