Scott Jennings (Lum the Mad) is reporting that Matt Firor, the long time producer for Dark Age of Camelot, has left Mythic to form his own studio.
One has to wonder if this was in the works before the EA buyout, or a product of it. I don’t know Mr. Firor personally, but the coincidence of the timing does make one pause. Scott weighs in with his insight on the subject:
“I know the Internet TRUTH BRIGADES are immediately streaming toward the Batforums with the tolling of doom for Mythic, but, like me, his move was more about location than anything else. Since marrying he was commuting on a daily basis from Hunt Valley, MD to Fairfax, VA. There’s only so much of that a wife will put up with.”
Either way, I do wish him good luck, he sure helped make DAoC a fun and successful property for Mythic.
