EA merges Mythic & BioWare - WTF?



Mythic: Developers of Dark Age of Camelot, and currently running the reasonable big MMO Warhammer Online.

BioWare: Developers of Baldur's Gate, MDK2, Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, Dragon Age. Currently making one of the most anticipated games of 2010, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

NOW THEY ARE ONE (kinda)! Yes, EA has decided to merge Mythic and BioWare into a new powerhouse MMO/RPG group. In what is supposedly a restructuring of MMO/RPG developers within EA, the Co-Owner of BioWare Ray Muzyka will take over as Group General Manager, while Mythic's co-founder and General Manager, Mark Jacobs, is... GONE. Yes, his last day is yesterday. Someone dropped the ball on spoiling that bit of information.

I can't say for sure, but it doesn't look like either of the companies will go through any excessive changes. There will just be a number of management changes, a new name for the division, and hopefully a little more organization between developers as a result.

Does this seem absolutely insane to anyone else? Think Marc Jacobs got the axe for Warhammer being underwhelming? I sure hope this doesn't mess up the release schedule of anything...
