Warhammer Online, the anticipated MMO title from EA Mythic based on the cult fantasy universe created by UK-based Games Workshop, will not ship in its previously-estimated time frame of Q1 2008.

An agency PR representative told videogaming247.com: "Back in August the game was pencilled in for the first quarter of 2008. However the game does not feature in EA's current release schedule and nothing new has been announced."

Meanwhile an internal spokesperson added: "I'm afraid that currently for Warhammer Online, we donât have a release date."

While the title has been shown publicly and is currently in a beta phase - the latest elements apparently added to the game include Shadow Warrior classes and new career mastery updates - with over 500,000 people signing up.

Due to the immense nature of persistent worlds, a number of previous titles have had their release dates pushed back to allow for further work to be completed - including Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures - while some titles that have been released on time have also been accused of not being finished, and subscription revenues have suffered as a result.
