Imperator : Game Postponed

Posted Jul 13, 2005 by Dana Massey

Although the press release does not say cancelation, it sure sounded like it. Today Mythic Entertainment announced that Imperator has been postponed so that they team may focus on Warhammer Online and the next expansion to Dark Age of Camelot: "Darkness Rising".

The move will mean no personnel layoffs at the Fairfax based developer.

MYTHIC ENTERTAINMENT TO POSTPONE PRODUCTION OF "IMPERATOR" MMORPG

Company to focus development on "Warhammer" MMORPG and "Dark Age of Camelot"

FAIRFAX, VA – July 13, 2005 – Mythic Entertainment, developer and publisher of massively-multiplayer online role-playing games, today announced the production postponement of "Imperator," the sci-fi MMORPG previously scheduled for a June 2006 release. The decision was made after a complete internal review of the project status.

“This was the most difficult decision that we have ever had to make,” said Mark Jacobs, CEO and president of Mythic Entertainment. “However, our tremendous success with 'Dark Age of Camelot' set the standard for Mythic of releasing nothing less than triple-A games, and 'Imperator' was simply not meeting that standard.”

There are no personnel layoffs planned as a result of this decision. Staff will be reassigned to the ongoing development of "Dark Age of Camelot" including the next expansion, "Darkness Rising," scheduled for Q4 ’05. In addition some personnel have already been assigned to the new "Warhammer" MMORPG which Mythic announced at E3 in May 2005.
