Warhammer Online developer Mythic Entertainment closes its doors


EA has shut down Mythic Entertainment, developer of Warhammer Online and Dark Age of Camelot.

The closure was confirmed in a statement from EA (sent to Kotaku):

“We are closing the EA Mythic location in Fairfax, Virginia, as we concentrate mobile development in our other studio locations. We are working with all impacted employees to provide assistance in finding new opportunities, either within EA or with other companies via an upcoming job fair.”

With beloved games like Warhammer Online, Dark Age of Camelot and Dragon’s Gate on their roster, it’s a shame that the last title Mythic put out was the horrendous, micro-transaction riddled mess that was the mobile reboot of Dungeon Keeper (which we gave a 3/10).

Sadly, the best the studio can hope for now is to one day have an empty building as cool as THQ's old house
