Mark Jacobs is our guest tomorrow for the Game/On Interview. The Co-Founder of Mythic Entertainment discusses his company's acquisition by Electronic Arts and what it means to Warhammer, Dark Age of Camelot and even Imperator. In advance of that, we are releasing this brief article.
| “In the short term, really very little [will change]”, Jacobs told me. “Mythic is still going to be based in Virginia, we’re staying intact as a company, we’re going to be adding staff to work on the various projects.”
He added that the deal will help the company penetrate new markets and provide better logistical support around the world.
The biggest concern for fans of Mythic is that the deal will somehow undermine Warhammer Online. Before the news of EA purchasing Mythic broke, Warhammer Online was far and a away the most hyped game on MMORPG.com with an average rating of 7.7/10. Today, they’re tied with Age of Conan at 7.2. Obviously, the news was not met with joy on all fronts.
“Nothing is going to change,” Mark said of Warhammer. “It’s going to be the game that Mythic wanted to make, that GW wanted us to make and if anything it’s probably going to be a better game.”
