Shacknews recently talked to Mythic Vice President Mark Jacobs and confirmed that the studio will not be honoring the work of its former employees on Warhammer Online. Not crediting one for his or her work is apparently standard practice. Jacobs' response to the inquiry seems casual when he mentions the 'hundreds' of people that worked on the title that won't be earning a spot on the credits.

Over the years, we've had hundreds of people work on the game, and we thank everyone who helped us bring our Warhammer passion to life, but only current employees that have continued until the end will be credited in the final game. Accreditation in Warhammer Online recognizes the incredible team that has poured their heart and soul into making WAR an amazing MMORPG experience.
Shacknews also talked to an ex-employee of Mythic who said that the lack of recognition is a “problem in the industry.” The anonymous ex-employee elaborated by stating that his three-year service to the game is equivalent to some of the people who are currently finishing the project and being credited with the progress. Understandably, the man is angry and is encouraging a possible lawsuit. “…I wish to get all former employees of EA Mythic/Mythic Entertainment together to discuss this and possibly take legal action against EA.”

As an author, this gets me a bit revved up. You always want to be credited with your work, even if you’re a secondary source. It’s a shame that Mythic isn’t taking the time to rifle through their filing cabinets to implement names in a field of scrolling text. What do you guys think? Is this an issue, or do you think if you leave a company your name should stay out?
