"No no," was the response from BioWare Mythic VP Eugene Evans when PC Gamer
asked if the studio's involvement in Star Wars: The Old Republic
put the future of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
, their Warhammer MMORPG in doubt. "All of these games appeal to different people for different reasons. I’m very proud to be able to say that I’m running the studio that’s run Ultima Online
for as long as it has – 14 years. Dark Age of Camelot
just celebrated 10 years. We hope we can run these games for as long as there is player interest." He also says there are no current plans to take the game down the free-to-play route so many of its competitors have chosen: "Right now, we’re focused on Wrath of Heroes
as our free-to-play offering in the Warhammer universe," Evans tells them. "We believe in the community of players who are playing Age of Reckoning. Yes, we could have attracted a lot of players to it [with free-to-play], but it’s unclear how long you’ll keep them. We wanted to support our game as it currently exists."
