Mythos Shutting Down In Europe

If you live in the US and were eagerly awaiting the North American release of Mythos (and let’s face it, how many among us can honestly say we weren’t holding off only Old Republic preorders), you will be disappointed to hear that those prospects for a release and long life span have dropped rather significantly. In the EU, Mythos already launched under Frogster. In the United States, Hanbitsoft will be taking the reigns.

Of course, if you were waiting for Mythos to launch in North America, you’d know that Codemasters is shutting down Mythos in Europe, following what the company described as a great launch and then a terrible retention rate (and as I’ve pointed out time and time again, it’s all about retention in this business).

MYTHOS enjoyed great popularity with the launch in April and the numerous registered users ensured a good start. The desired long-term success unfortunately did not follow. Under these circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the operation of MYTHOS.

This puts Mythos’ life span at about six months. Players who bought into the game will be compensated via credits for Runes of Magic, and potentially beta keys for Codemasters’ upcoming title Eligium.
