I knew this would happen, how many dev teams have EA dissolved into their own corporate bullsh*t? A lot, and BioWare is next on the chopping block.

aw crap...
I know times are tough, but jeez... you too BioWare?

EA and Activision are the f'n Borg...

I really don't know how to feel about this yet.

Has there ever been a Bioware game that wasn't great?

It's such a shame that it's been assimilated

I was really expecting something like this Warhammer is not doing as good as EA wanted which was the reason they bought Mythic in the first place. Merging is better then closing and with BioWare wanting to get in to MMOs getting the Mythic staff should help them along. This is very much a case of BioWare taking over the Mythic team not a merger even if that's what they are calling it. If the Mythic name sticks around in some form or not we will just have to wait and see I guess.

Accidentally posted the same alt source twice guys. Anyone know how to remove one of them?

This is only good, IMHO
BioWare is one of a handful of extremely well-trusted RPG creators and the BioWare Dr. Duo has been delivering quality games with excellent storylines for decades now. Mythic's concepts have always been very self-driven without too much regard to the general public want or desire.

I enjoyed Dark Age of Camelot back in the day but I cannot say the same of Warhammer Online or anything Mythic has done in the last 6 years. Good luck to Mark and hopefully Mythic doesn't leave Virginia and the people there can keep their jobs. They're not bad developers and designers, I just think they need a new direction/management.

Oh god. Warhammer Online is garbage but Bioware's RPG's are really great. Not a good merge.

Warhammer Online is not garbage at all...it just wasn't picked up as much since everyone and their mom still plays World of Warcraft.

Lots of big news today. I hope the Bioware team's game ideas take Priority.

The BioWare co-founders are heading up the group. The Mythic GM will actually report to them. I don't know if "merge" was the right term for this situation, as they seem like they'll still be separate developers aside from BioWare's founders having oversight on Mythic.
