Electronic Arts Shuts Down Mythic Entertainment

Well can't exactly say this is a surprise but Warhammer Online and Dark Age Of Camelot studio Mythic, acquired by EA in 2006, has shut down.

Founded in 1995, Mythic Entertainment most recently released a mobile version of Dungeon Keeper which was not well received (at all). Electronic Arts had already shut down the servers for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning last year.

Electronic Arts confirmed the shutdown and issued a brief statement:

"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."
