Having spoken with my local GW dude (apparently used to work at head office and Warhammer Forge as one of the email answerers before WHF quasi collapsed and then got sick of working with interns with a crib sheet and only a basic working knowledge about the game) about reserving a copy of Archaon whenever it drops, and getting into a discussion about it.
Supposedly, it's taking inspiration from the original "end of warhammer" that the WHF guys had at the start of the production for Tamurkhan, but it didn't get much traction due to the limited nature of it, and the fact that at the end of it, it was written to be just a burp in time and removed from memory (he said at that point, the FW office was split into whether to go into the past of Warhammer, and do things like Battle of Blackfire Pass, or the War of Vengeance and to tie it in with the Time of Legends etc, but it was sort of overruled when many of the major events were earmarked by the WHF GW Team and said they couldn't use that. So he says).
So, they settled on going back for some source material, and settled on Tamurkhan - and were planning on bringing out 3 other books for the gods, but like I said, Tamurkhan was gotten for the rules of the Carmine Dragon and the Chaos Dwarfs only, pretty much, which left the rest of the book and game progression to stagnate, and hence no new releases, which led to no new interest, and so no new releases, ad infinitum ad absurdium.
The basic ideas of the time bubbles, and "the end of the warhammer world" (as in the original ideas) then went over to the Fantasy team. They chose different storylines, and included things such as the resurrection of Nagash, and turning him into a "force for good", or "not-bad", at least, and then taking it 5 books to allow the big bads of the setting - including Be'lakor and Archaon to take centre stage once more (his mention of Be'lakor was interesting-ish), then they'd go and focus on the other books. After all, the 9th edition rumour about the shattered worlds is as a result of Mazdamundi and Kroak enacting the Big Fucking Red Button of the old ones, supposedly, and there's no mention of that anywhere.
