EA is getting all its orcs, elves and other fantasy creatures in a row over in Asia for the eventual release of EA Mythic's Warhammer Online
. EA announced that it has entered into an agreement with GigaMedia to launch and operate WAR
in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.
Working with the team at EA Mythic, GigaMedia
will handle marketing, community management, technical support, customer service functions and details regarding the release which "will be announced in the months ahead." With any luck, this means EA is actually putting effort and thought behind Warhammer Online
instead of just throwing it to the wolves like the ill-fated Earth and Beyond
. That pile-o-WoW-cash
sitting at Activision-Blizzard
must be acting as a positive influence.
