BioWare Mythic dropping the 'BioWare' moniker

BioWare Mythic is dropping the "BioWare" part of its name, changing its name back to simply "Mythic." According to the company's announcement, this comes as the studio gains a "new focus," but it promises that current projects are still on-track.

The announcement (via was made at the Warhammer Online site. "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," the announcement reads. Current projects include Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes and Ultima Forever.

Electronic Arts changed the studio's name in 2009, during the height of BioWare's popularity. A series of poor fan reactions to BioWare's products is not necessarily responsible to the name change, but it certainly seems to follow logically.
