It seems to be contraticting with

http://www.direct2drive.com/6/6327/product/Buy-Warhammer-Online:-Age-of-Reckoning-(Pre-Order)-Download?cmp=fptb

which states

Live Game Head Start begins September 15, 2008 at 10am EST
Official Server Live date is September 18, 2008 at 10am EST


Wonder which is right?

Spinks from the Book of Grudges is where I saw it.

They have it from the Warhammer official Europe site.

Sept 18th it is.

There's no way this could be accurate. They haven't even entered open beta yet, and that release date is just over two weeks away. I mean, I guess they could do it, but that would mean one of the shortest open beta programs ever utilised in an MMO wouldn't it?

I think he was talking about the 23rd release date.

So this game will be completed on 23rd Sep 2009! Feel free to buy it when it comes out and get hit with the hype in you face with unstable servers and lots of bugs and weekly patch. I learn my lesson with AoC.

US Press release confirms September 18th release date. This should've been known as the US and EU release dates were always known to be the same ;)

I have to say, as much as I have been looking forward to the retail opening of WAR... I am a little concerned how much trouble these guys have getting out simple factual messages like a release date. Hopefully it is not a harbinger of things to come. :)

I got my hopes up when I first saw this.

But thought that it was too soon. Being that the date is embedded in the image I think that the date is still going to be significant.

What if the marketing arm mixed up the Open Beta start date with the Release date!

I'm crossing my fingers and putting my money on an August 23rd start to open beta.

Well open beta client download has been announced for August 15, so August 23 for open beta start is not implausible.
