As Electronic Arts gathers both its Mythic and BioWare studios into a single group, Mythic GM and co-founder Mark Jacobs is leaving the company.

"EA is restructuring its RPG and MMO games development into a new group that includes both Mythic and BioWare," said the company in a statement.

BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka will head the new unit as Group General Manager, while fellow co-founder Greg Zeschuk will take the role of chief creative officer. The Mythic team will see co-founder and COO Rob Denton take the role of general manager.

According to the announcement, not much will change for the BioWare group as it works on Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2 and Star Wars MMO The Old Republic, and its teams will continue to maintain the same structure, reporting to Muzyka.

As for Jacobs, who co-founded the studio with Denton in 1995 and most recently led Warhammer: Age of Reckoning, his last day at EA was yesterday, June 23. He has not yet commented on his current plans, but his out-of-office message indicates he is "on sabbatical."
