Wasn't it declared about 6 months ago that mythic is the developers?
The only real trouble with this is that imo, it desperatley wanted to be Warhammer 40k Online

::EDIT:: I see, they revealed more details on the 16th even though the news that they had secured the rights was unveiled May 18th 2005

Mythic were working on a far-future Sci-Fi MMORPG called Imperator, which got a lot of buzz going from the previews, and even won a couple of "most wanted" awards at the shows it was demoed at.

It was put on indefinite hold the day that Mythic acquired the Warhammer license from Games Workshop, despite the fact that they had a potential hit on their hands. The official jargon was "under internal review".

http://www.imperatoronline.com/pressrelease/

But, if you go and check out the site that's still there for Imperator, and especially some of the screenshots, it doesn't take a genius to work out what the canny boys at Mythic are getting ready to do, provided that the WHO MMORPG is something of a hit and makes money for GW.

WH40K the MMO anyone?

http://www.imperatoronline.com/media/zoom/34.html

Just give it time. Sorry for going mildly off topic. I'm a WoW player, but I'll be taking part in the WHO testing, for certain.

Thanks Loki, I totally forgot about Imperator. It was one of the games that looked very promising to me, sad to see development was halted due to WHO though
The main concern for WHO at the moment though is that it looks far too much like WoW in terms of the graphics (although Blizzard pratically ripped the original races for Warcraft and Starcraft from Warhammer/40k anyway)

I used to work for Games Workshop a few years ago at the head office here in Nottingham so I got to see a few bits and pieces of first renders and artwork and the likes for this game and I have to say that I am very pleased that graphics technology has come along since then hehehe.

Unfortunatly I never got to see any of the really meaty stuff that was going on, that place is soooo secretive.

I heard about this a while ago from some of my WoW friends, although all they had on the web site at that point was basically a press release.

I've been keeping my eye on this one and the released screenshots do look rather WoW-esque but then that is partially due to the fact the Warcraft is a slight rip off of Warhammer.
