EA shuts down Mythic Entertainment

Mythic Entertainment has been closed after nearly 20 years of game development.

The studio, whose catalogue includes Tempest, Dark Age of Camelot, Warhammer Online and Ultima Forever, was founded in 1995 and acquired by EA in 2006.

However, EA has confirmed to Kotaku that it has now brought the developer to an end.

We are closing the EA Mythic location in Fairfax, Virginia, as we concentrate mobile development in our other studio locations,” a statement read.

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’s most recent title was the widely despised free-to-play Dungeon Keeper remake for mobile.
