Electronic Arts Combines Mythic and Bioware RPG Houses

EA is merging their two top roleplaying game developers, BioWare and Mythic, into one massive RPG group, with BioWare’s co-founder Ray Muzyka taking the lead and Mythic’s Mark Jacobs taking a powder.

Creating what is effectively a massively multiplayer RPG development juggernaut, EA has tapped Muzkya to become Group General Manager of their new RPG/MMO Group, with fellow BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk acting as Group Creative Officer. With the departure of Mythic’s Mark Jacobs, Mythic co-founder Rob Denton will step up as the General Manager of Mythic, reporting directly to Muzkya. BioWare’s operations will remain unchanged.
