Yesterday saw the merging of EA’s BioWare and Mythic Entertainment groups while EA has today confirmed Mythic Entertainment’s general manager, Mark Jacobs, has indeed left the company.

A spokesperson for EA told IncGamers that Jacobs is “a visionary thinker, and one of the pioneers in online gaming and is, at heart, an entrepreneur.

“We wish him the very best going forward.”

We know, from yesterday’s item, that EA is “restructuring its RPG and MMO games development,” and will be headed by co-founder of BioWare Ray Muzyka, with Rob Denton; successor to Mark Jacobs, taking the reins of Mythic.

Despite ongoing speculation, EA has refused to comment any further on the merger, but whether we’re expecting to hear an MMO announcement from EA, whether the economical crisis has started to really hurt developers of larger publishers, or whether there is just really no more need for two developers which work in primarily the same circles; are all things we’ll have to wait to find the answers out for.
