The legendary developer behind games such as Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online has been closed by parent company EA today. EA stated that it was closing Mythic to focus mobile game development with other studios.
Mythics final game was the 2013 remake of Dungeon Keeper for mobile. The game was panned by the critics almost universally and unleashed a backlash from the gaming community over the excessive use of microtransactions.
Whilst Epic curiously seem to have avoided using the words "open source", they have also stated that the games code will be made available on github and anyone with the skill to contribute will be able to do so. Epic indicated that the game will launch with a marketplace, similar to the one Valve use for Team Fortress 2, selling various mods and cosmetic upgrades as developed by the community and this is how they intend to fund the game. Epic were very keen to stress that there will be no microtransactions for the game!
