Two of EA's "BioWare" studios, Victory Games and Mythic, have dropped the label from its studio name. Mythic says the change was a result of a new focus.
"In the wake of a new focus our studio has recently changed its name from BioWare Mythic to Mythic," the studio said on its website. "Everything else stays the same - our passionate teams will continue to support and develop our existing titles as well as working on some new and exciting projects."
Victory Games did not release a statement on the change but the studio's website has removed all instances of the name. The studio announced in December 2011 it was joining the BioWare games label.
BioWare now has five studios under its label: BioWare Edmonton, BioWare Austin, BioWare Montreal, BioWare Ireland, and BioWare San Francisco. It's unclear if more studios are also changing their names. Abandon the sinking ship it seems.
Edmonton, Austin and Montreal where BioWare studios before the EA purchase. I doubt they will change their names. BioWare Ireland might turn into EA EU Customer Support because that is what they were created for. No idea what BioWare San Francisco is…
I don't think there was any other EA studio that added the BioWare label beside Mythic and Victory Games. Seems like the RPG/MMO division imploded. lol
