BioWare now BioWare Mythic [Updated]

A new Warhammer Producer's Letter discusses plans for the upcoming version 1.3.6 of Warhammer Online. It also reveals BioWare is going by a the new name of BioWare Mythic, apparently hoping that will work out better than the EA Mythic moniker they used for a short time. Back to version 1.3.6, they offer some information on the patch, link to this post with even more details, and say: "More on this and all the other things going on in the Summer of WAR next month!" Update: Apparently BioWare Mythic is now the name for the Warhammer Online team, while BioWare also seems to still exist as a separate entity, sorry for the confusion.

EA's goal is to get into the MMO market. They've been trying to compete for years on end with little success. UO has been there ultimate which lives to this day. Mythic was to be there MMO place but as that seems to not be the plan anymore.

EA used to have a dedicated RPG division. Remember Ultima? They'll just rape the next IP and move on - business as usual.

I don't know why someone thought it a good idea to associate a company coming out with a new mmo, with the one that made that piece of shit called warhammer.

I believe EA has been wanting to put together a dedicated RPG division, like EA Sports, under the Bioware brand. EA's MMO studio, Mythic, is probably being renamed Bioware Mythic to reflect that branding.

Anyone still believe Bioware is still Bioware? If so, I hope Santa brings you lots of presents this Xmas! LOL!

I guess this is supposed to be a swipe at how they sold out, but considering their output has been awesome, who gives a shit?

Relax. It's just the other studio that's now being called Bioware Mythic. There's still a Bioware. Period.

Who, I hope, are hard at work on Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 3.

Bioware is still Bioware. EA Mythic (the Warhammer Online guys) are now being called Bioware Mythic.

And I assume Activision Blizzard is an innocent moniker as well?

Why would you fuck up a perfectly good Company name by attaching Mythic to it?
