Coming 2007, eh?
I know it was in development before, and was even mentioned in a recent WD, but it was scrapped, due to "Lack of support" or something. It said the this on the website.
"Is this the same Warhammer MMORPG I have heard about in the past from another developer?
No. That game has ceased development and the developer has moved on to other projects. This will be a next-generation MMORPG that will serve as the standard bearer for both Mythic and Games Workshop."
But now looking at the site, it seems Mythic Entertainment have taken on the project. Can't wait!
Seems there is going to be a Monthly Fee, but "only" around $10-$16 [USD].

Yay, I was sad when the old Warhammer Online when the way of the squats.
Yeah, I still sadly remember the last one being trashed too, and after so many really good looking screen shots.
Why does GW keep trashing good looking games? Starcraft, the first MMORPGABCDEFG, maybe even this one....
I think the project was stopped because of World of Warcraft.
To be honest, if I'd be a pusblisher I would think the same. On 2007 the WoW hype may have exhausted again, so Warhammer Online might have a good chance on the markets.
"Do you want your heretic rare, medium or well done, Lord Inquisitor?"
I would think they'd do better with a 40k MMORPG rather than a Fantasy one. The fantasy milieu is seriously played out, especially post WoW. I guess what stops them is that the existing sci-fi MMORPGs really haven't done that well compared to the fantasy market.
It seems like gun combat is a really daunting challenge in MMORPG design.
I'd personally like to see GW stay away from all video/computer game variants. Mostly because it controdicts their books. In the Big Red Book it gives reasons why the computer will never rival the table top. I see them investing in video games as being a money sink which will inevitably drive up their model prices. I could see them endorsing some of their stories for a movie, but not actually funding the movie(remember the Dungeons and Dragons deboggle).
