Mark Jacobs Responds Regarding WAR Layoffs

Posted Tue, Jan 20, 2009 by Brokain

Yesterday, the rumor hit the internet that EA had laid off a ton of workers from the Mythic WAR dept. This obviously brought up a lot of questions and, of course, there was some worry from the player base. However, one of the reasons we love Mythic so much is they TALK TO US! Mark Jacobs dropped by the Warhammer Alliance forums and laid it out for all to see.

It isn't any more complicated than that other than to say that we have a very large studio and pretty much every person there has been and will continue to work on WAR for quite a while (meaning we haven't started work on another game yet). When we launched, we had over 400+ people working on the game in one capacity or another so it's not like we had a small team at launch or even a small team now.

Once again, Mark Jacobs keeps us in the know. You can read everything he has to say on the subject here.
