Following reports that Mythic didn’t credit all employees that worked on WAR in the game itself, the developer’s confirmed it is to launch an online database crediting everyone who participated in development. Which is nice.

From Shacknews:

The Mythic team is also taking the following steps to address credit policies:

  • In-game and manual credits will be reserved for the launch team.
  • Mythic will create an online database listing the name and title of everyone who contributed to a project, regardless of current employment status. Additionally, the studio will make best efforts to provide this information for its previous online games.

“I applaud Mythic for taking steps to address this issue,” stated IGDA chairperson Jen MacLean. “Fair and accurate credits and transparent standards for crediting remain a pervasive problem in the industry.”
