Warhammer Online Delay

YouGamers reports on the contents of the April, 2007 Warhammer Online newsletter, in which EA/Mythic reveals they have pushed the release date for the upcoming Warhammer MMORPG to 2008, a release previously slated for some time this year (story). Word is:

We have made the decision to move our ship date for the US and Europe to the first quarter of 2008. (Release dates for Asia will be announced at a later date.) Since our acquisition by EA, we have been afforded many wonderful development opportunities and we plan to take full advantage of everything that is available. This includes taking several additional months to make the best MMORPG possible.

By extending our development time, we'll be able to do these in-depth reviews several times prior to launch to ensure all areas of WAR benefit from the experience of ongoing development. EA is totally supportive of our decision and are behind us 100%. We all believe WAR will be the next great MMORPG and being part of EA affords us the time we need to make it so. It is EA's ongoing commitment to quality that will allow us, and other EA studios, to deliver great games, now and in the future.

So EA, looking to get in on some of that WoW-like cash flow, buys Mythic. (Too bad their own talentless hacks couldn't make another playable MMO to save their asses.) Vanguard is released way to early and starts down the slow road to oblivion. Everyone takes notice. Good for Mythic though, they talk EA out of enough cash to keep polishing their game(turd?). Don't really know or care about this game, I don't patronize EA, I just hope it gives the sociopaths and other gankers enough to keep them entertained and out the good the games.
