NFL 2k7 - Imperials Vs. Chaos?!?!
It is being reported that EA, the largest name in console sports gaming, is setting its sights on the MMO world with the recent acquisition of Mythic Entertainment, makers of Dark Age of Camelot and the upcoming Warhammer MMO. From the press release on EA.COM:
We here at Memepunks were big fans of Dark Age of Camelot when it launched. Back then Mythic was a small time game house with big ideas. They had some problems, but had a good relationship with the community (I still miss my Herald Updates from that sexy minx Sanya) and were delivering content on a semi regular basis. Then this little MMO from Blizzard came out and like most of the free world, we forgot all about our Skalds and Thanes.
EA is a strong company. They have and keep the major sports licenses because they make good games that fans enjoy. EA has devoted much of their development to consoles however, and it will be interesting to see how this return to the PC world goes.
I am optimistic about this though. We may just have to dust off our visa cards and break out our 44 oz mountain dew jugs once again!
