Executive producer Jeff Hickman responds to the recent news of major layoffs at Mythic in a producer's letter addressed to the WAR community. Naturally many fans of the game are concerned, and Hickman writes to ease the fears centering around WAR's future due to recent developments.
On the matter of WAR, Hickman had this to say:
-Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning has had a solid first year despite some issues that we’re working to address every day. We’ve seen a great response to 1.3.2, which introduced tremendous performance improvements. A flood of new players are discovering the game every day thanks to the recently released Endless Trial and New User Journey. Moving forward we remain committed to releasing more great patches, continued performance improvements, and changes based upon your valuable feedback!

UPDATE: WAR Producer Jeff Skalski added to Mr. Hickman's comments in a new letter published on the WAR Herald yesterday. Mr. Skalski takes some time to highlight some of WAR's more recent accomplishments such as the launch of the Mac client, the New User Journey, and the Endless Trial, while also pointing ahead to the future with an update on version 1.3.3:
1.3.3 brings with it a focus on continued polish and bug fixes, enhancements to RvR as well as other features to improve the quality and enjoyment of your experience. We’ll be sprucing up graphics with improved lighting options and bloom to make the skies pop to life and create some spectacular sights, in addition over the course of 1.3.3 you’ll get to enjoy three live events including the return of the Battlebrew Backpack in Keg End and the much beloved Night of Murder event in addition to an all new event in the new year…yarrrr. We’re anything but bored as you can see and we can’t wait to open the gates on PTS to hear your feedback. Your feedback is vital to ensuring 1.3.3 is a hit so make sure you share it!
