Mythic staff are apparently reeling from the news that company boss Mark Jacobs has left the building.
"People are shocked and in disbelief about Mark leaving," a former employee told Massively.
"But they're also excited to be working with BioWare. I can't even fathom Mark leaving a company he loved so much, it was his life.
"Personally, I can't see that this is voluntary in any shape or form."
It was announced last night that Jacobs had left the company, with BioWare bosses Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk now in control of a newly-formed MMO-RPG EA group.
Heavy stuff. Check Massively for more.
