A recent EA Mythic job listing has renewed speculation that Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
) is being co-developed for consoles, likely Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The listing calls for a 'Warhammer
Console' producer who will lead the production and design of a "title being developed across next generation console platforms for the online MMORPG market." While WAR
is not explicitly named, it's certainly implied.
With this revelation, comes a mess of questions: what effect, if any, would console versions have on WAR
for PC? Would the projects be wholly separated? Or would bits and pieces from each version be sacrificed to simplify cross-platform development and keep the overall budget down?
