UO, WAR, DAoC – Around as long as there is player interest

Ultima Online just hit 14 years, Dark Age of Camelot has hit 10 years (Happy Birthday!), and Warhammer: Age of Reckoning has hit 3 years.

Are they going away anytime soon or going “free-to-play” (pay-to-play).

Not according to an interview in PC Gamer with Eugene Evans, BioWare Mythic Vice President:

“No, no,” he said when I asked if Mythic’s involvement with SWTOR could signal WAR’s end during an interview at GDC Online. “All of these games appeal to different people for different reasons. I’m very proud to be able to say that I’m running the studio that’s run Ultima Online for as long as it has – 14 years. Dark Age of Camelot just celebrated 10 years. We hope we can run these games for as long as there is player interest.”

WAR, then, definitely isn’t going the way of Matrix Online and Star Wars Galaxies. Not only that, Evans said subscriptions have risen in the wake of Warhammer: Wrath of Heroes’ recent announcement. So then, free-to-play? Sure, it’s all the rage, but WAR’s marching to the beat of its own drum.
