Ecrit par Kaelgar, le 24-06-2009

La nouvelle vient de tomber, Mythic va fusionner avec Bioware, en laissant Mark Jacobs sur le carreau. Mythic restera cependant une entité à part entière mais elle travaillera de très près avec Bioware.

Today we have important news to share with the community. EA is restructuring its RPG and MMO games development into a new group that includes both Mythic and BioWare. This newly formed team will be led by Ray Muzyka, co-founder and General Manager of BioWare. With this change, Ray becomes Group General Manager of the new  RPG/MMO studio group. BioWare's other co-founder, Greg Zeschuk will become Group Creative Officer for the new RPG/MMO studio group. Rob Denton will step up as General Manager of Mythic and report to Ray. BioWare's studios remain unchanged and continue to report to Ray.

Mark Jacobs, current General Manager of Mythic will leave EA on June 23, 2009. We thank Mark for his contributions at Mythic and wish him the very best going forward. Mark played a major part in the success of Mythic with his contribution as General Manager and Lead Designer of WAR.

Mythic retains a strong team led by Rob who co-founded Mythic in 1995. Rob played a critical role in the development of Dark Age of Camelot. In his previous role as COO, he was responsible for all day-to-day management of the studio including all development, operations and support.

Please join us in celebrating the union of these two award-winning studios.

Bien que la nouvelle du départ de Mark Jacobs puisse rendre nostalgique, nous ne pouvons qu'espérer que le studio talentueux Bioware donne un nouveau départ au jeu.

EDIT : La 3ème lettre de Jeff Hickmann doit arriver demain d'après Robert Mull que je cite "The plan is for the third part of Jeff's Producer Letter to go up tomorrow", ce plan va sûrement parler de cette fusion.
