EA Acquires Mythic


This just in!

Electronic Arts, the Redwood City-based developer and publisher of video games, said on Tuesday that it will acquire Virginia-based Mythic Entertainment, a publisher of online games, for an undisclosed sum. The deal is expected to be completed by September, when Mythic will become EA Mythic, a wholly owned studio dedicated to developing massively multiplayer online role-playing games. Mythic is the developer of the award-winning Dark Age of Camelot online game, and is currently developing Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning under a licensing deal with Games Workshop. Mark Jacobs, the president and CEO of Mythic, will become the vice president and general manager of EA Mythic, while fellow co-founder Rob Denton will assume the role of the studio’s vice president and COO.

I smell an Allen Varney article. “Conquest of Mythic” anyone?
