In an unexpected moment of candor, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello told a group of investors that "Warhammer Online [will be] a strong entry in the MMORPG space," but will not "rival WoW". While this may not be a huge revelation to most people, it's shocking to hear such brutal honesty coming from a corporate type that has a personal investment in the success of the game in question. Kudos for being your own man, John! Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will release on PC sometime later this year.
