Looks like EA threw out Mark Jacobs in the recent Mythic/Bioware rejiggering.
Early in May, Electronic Arts let me know that they wanted to make some changes within the Games Label and as a result of those changes I have been out of the office (and out of touch with the team, game, etc.) since that day.
He’s a classy guy, so what he is saying seems to be that EA fired him without notice and forbid him any time to wrap things up or say goodbyes. It happened to me, but I didn’t found the goddamn studio. At least he probably has a pile of money from the sale of Mythic to comfort him. Here’s hoping him the best.
