Electronic Arts has confirmed that Mythic Entertainment, developer of Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online, has been shut down.
“We are closing the EA Mythic location in Fairfax, Virginia, as we concentrate mobile development in our other studio locations,” an EA spokesperson told Kotaku. “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.”
Mythic Entertainment was formed in 1995 and was purchased by EA and renamed EA Mythic in in June 2006. The studio’s name then went through a series of name changes, returning to Mythic Entertainment, then BioWare Mythic and in 2012, just Mythic.
The company’s focus was shifted to mobile and tablet development in 2012 and the last games produced by the company were Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar, and a mobile remake of Dungeon Keeper.
