When EA bought Mythic, it gave them experts to run their MMORPGs. While Mythic may have a potential hit on their hands with Warhammer Online, it is impossible to believe that everyone involved is just going to sit around and wait for it to launch. Thus, the question becomes, what else could EA Mythic be working on? With the Electronic Arts catalogue of IPs and the muscle they provide, we look at some of the likely candidates.
This is a speculative editorial about what makes the most sense to us and not necessarily what EA or EA Mythic have planned.
|To date, it seems like EA may have understood their mistakes. They've set the newly dubbed EA Mythic up as the head of their MMO operations. Both their surviving MMOGs, along with the current and upcoming Mythic games report through a single structure overseen by people who have had great success in this industry. The earliest indications seem to show that perhaps Electronic Arts has learned a lesson.
EA is not, however, a small company with finite ambitions. It is only logical to assume that while Warhammer Online may look like it has the makings of being a big hit, they are not going to rest all their MMO hopes on one potential star and two aging veterans. One has to ask then, what else might they be working on?
