Gamespot is reporting that Warhammer Online, the much anticipated MMO from EA Mythic has missed an important milestone and as such, pushed back to mid next year, missing it’s previously scheduled March 2008 release.

From the article(Quote from EA CEO John Riccitello):
‘Frankly, this is a pretty straightforward situation,’ Riccitiello told analysts during a postreport conference call. ‘I want to emphasize to the team at Mythic that, no, we are not having you be part of our restructuring. That’s not in the plan. We are investing in the growth of that studio, and the Warhammer slip is a simple one. They missed part of a milestone. [EA Mythic general manager] Mark [Jacobs] came forward and said it would affect quality if he held the March date. So we made the decision that, with the big investment we’ve got behind it and the talent and inspiration of the team, to invest behind quality. We’re going to give it a little bit more time, a little bit more work, and we think we’ll have a little bit more of a hit on our hands.’
