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.

I agree, the animations and what not are terrible. At least LotRO looks at least like a finished product, such as any MMO can be considered "finished". However, I still have nightmares about the AO launch...  
"We can do this one of two ways. There's the hard way, which involves hours of discussion, tons of negotiation, half a dozen bribes, and no guarantee of success."
"What's the easy way?"
"Liberally placed high explosives."
