Wait, so WAR and WoW are fighting now? Yes, says Mythic CEO Mark Jacobs, and this “lengthy battle” of the bands won’t be winding down any time soon.

“One thing about MMOs is that people play multiple games,” asserted Jacobs. “That’s one of the reasons I was very surprised by [Blizzard COO] Paul’s comments . He knows that people may play WoW and they’ll play WAR and maybe even a third game at the same time.”

But what happens when Blizzard launches one of the most anticipated expansion packs of all time?

“We’ve known that Blizzard is preparing to launch in November,” Jacobs said. “We just announced some of the things that will be going in our first major patch… that’s one of the ways we’re going to respond… It’s a marathon, not a sprint. We’ve got a lot of stuff going in, not only this fall but then there’s spring and then after that.”

Sorry, Hundred Years War; you just lost your place in the history books.
