EA announced that it was closing Mythic Entertainment, the developer behind The Dark Age of Camelot series and Warhammer Online.

The publisher released the following statement: “We are closing the EA Mythic location in Fairfax, Virginia, as we concentrate mobile development in our other studio locations. 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 Entertainment had been working on Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning from 2008 up until 2013, when EA decided to shut the MMO down. Since then, Mythic was moved to mobile, and developed Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar and Dungeon Keeper: Mobile. Dungeon Keeper: Mobile was very poorly received, especially for its free-to-play model, which made it difficult for players to do anything in the game without paying.
