Mythic drops EA from its name
Warhammer Online developer will revert back to Mythic Entertainment
EA Mythic boss Mark Jacobs has told MMORPG.com that the Warhammer Online developer is dropping the EA from its name, and becoming Mythic Entertainment once more.
That's what the company was called before EA bought it, and the name under which it released its previous MMO, Dark Age of Camelot.
Jacobs explained that the name change didn't indicate any change in the company's relationship with EA, beyond the more open attitude EA has recently taken to the development studios it owns.
"I've always been a believer of separate branding," said Jacobs. "I think that this is a wonderful example of how things at EA are changing. Both John [Riccitiello] and Frank [Gibeau] have spoken multiple times about city states, more freedom, that sort of thing, and I think this is an obvious example."
