Warhammer Online shuts down over 60 servers

March 13, 2009

Mythic Entertainment, the creators of the massive race vs. race MMO Warhammer Online, have announced that they have shut down 63 American and European servers. What could this mean for the future of the game? Mythic state that this move was to create a better PvP experience for its players, shrugging off the concept that the game’s population is dwindling. A mandatory character transfer to heavily populated servers is a good idea but it’s usually a desperate sign when you have to do it to that many servers.

The game’s general population has fallen from a healthy 750,000 players to under half at just over 300,000. Not the best sign, despite Mythic claiming the number of paying subscribers is rising.

We’ll see what the future holds for this seemingly ill-fated MMO.

For the Dark Gods,

Eternal Resonance.
