Mythic to Assist BioWare with SWTOR

Posted Thu, Jul 09, 2009 by Savanja

After the announcement that Mythic and BioWare would be united as a MMO group under EA (though as separate teams), BioWare has revealed that Mythic will likely assist the team in the development of Star Wars: The Old Republic. BioWare will not likely be returning the favor with Warhammer Online, but this collaboration brings up all sorts of questions as to how a group effort between the teams will play out. Eurogamer has the story!

BioWare has told Eurogamer that Mythic Entertainment will "without a doubt" help out on Star Wars: The Old Republic, as there are "absolutely opportunities to share and learn" within the newly formed RPG/MMO group.

As for BioWare helping Warhammer Online, however, co-founder Greg Zeschuk is not so sure.

"I think we always have lots of opinions to share, Ray and I," said Zeschuk in an interview published today. "We've both played Warhammer, and actually I've still been playing it on and off for a while, so I think for us it's not to much a popularity boost as just the fact that we can probably bring perspectives to the table that will be new and perhaps helpful to the guys from Mythic in the same way from an online perspective they can certainly share with us.

How does this effect SWTOR fans? There has been much criticizing of Mythic as of late, will the assistance hurt BioWare's efforts? Share your thoughts by clicking the "Post your comments" link below!
