And it’s not going to be another delay!!
In the article over at mmorpg.com Mark Jacobs revealed that part 1 of the big news was the name change and tomorrow part 2 will bring THREE announcements. Over at the vault Mark had this to say:
Well, interesting speculation as to why and it really is as simple as EA continuing to reinvent itself. If you look at both the newly acquired studios (BioWare, Pandemic) notice that there is no EA before their name like there was ours. Having separate brand identities has been proven to be a winning formula in such diverse companies as Estee Lauder, Disney and GE. This is a long-standing wish of mine and speaking for everyone at Mythic, it’s a great thing for all concerned. I really couldn’t be happier that this has happened. I didn’t mind being EA Mythic but ah, Mythic Entertainment sounds great, I love our new logo and the timing is wonderful.
As to the other stuff that is going to be announced tomorrow, I can promise you one thing, we are not announcing a delay.
Perhaps an official release date? Maybe – personally I doubt it. Anyone care to venture a guess as to what these three announcements will be? My guesses are…
- Open Beta Date
- Head-start info
- Okay, I guess a release date is possible.
Tomorrow is going to be a VERY interesting day.
