MJ Addresses Myth III Moves
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

IMG reported yesterday that many of the Myth III: The Wolf Age team members recently found themselves without work. Now, citing "a change in developmental focus," MumboJumbo have confirmed the closure of their Irvine, California office in an update to their web site.

While the update suggests that "many of the Myth III team members" have been offered relocation to Dallas, "Burger" Bill Heineman said that he and Chris Jacobson have returned to Contraband Entertainment, even while completing work on the Mac version of Myth III.

According to the update - and confirmed by a post from MacSoft's Nate Birkholz in our forums - the Mac version is still on track. Here's a clip from the MumboJumbo page:

The Macintosh version of Myth III is in final testing but has been held up due to some Mac OS-X specific issues. We want to give all of our fans the best possible experience on every platform and expect to have these issues ironed out shortly. When we do, we will be releasing Macintosh versions of both demos as well. We want to thank all of our Mac fans and MacSoft in particular for being so patient during these last few weeks.
You'll notice mention of two demos for Myth III. The team is working on getting a second demo out for the PC soon which focuses on the single player, to complement the first demo, which was multiplayer only.

Once again, our best wishes go out to those ex-MumboJumbo employees in this tough job market.
