One of several major pieces of news dropped yesterday was Electronic Arts' decision to merge BioWare and Mythic into a singular RPG entity for the publisher, with BioWare at the helm. Mark Jacobs, who had been leading Mythic, has left the company. Mass conspiracy? Trouble at Mythic? Cats and dogs living together? Not so, according to Warhammer: Age of Reckoning producer Josh Drescher and his blog.
For one, "no one else is leaving the studio," said Drescher.
He also expressed enthusiasm over their new developer overlords, BioWare.
"We’re all really excited about working alongside BioWare as part of the MMO/RPG division," he said. "While we’ve got a lot of experience ourselves and have learned a lot of lessons (some harder than others), it’s exciting to know we’ll have the folks at BioWare right there with us as we move forward as a company. I’ve been lucky enough to meet Ray and Greg a few times in the past and they are clearly passionate about MMOs and games in general. Their affection for us was very clear today and I think they really made the team feel comfortable and supported."
More details are coming on the future of Warhammer, too, which will outline the next steps for the MMO and where the game's going post-Jacobs.
