Mythic Entertainment, developer of the upcoming Dark Age of Camelot, has partnered with Abandon Entertainment, a diversified entertainment company based in New York City. The partnership was created to provide funding for the creation and development of current and future massively multiplayer games.

According to Abandon CEO Marcus Ticotin, the partnership will build on the synergies created by both companies' respective areas of expertise in film, television, and online games.

A preview of Dark Age of Camelot will be presented at the Game Developers Conference being held in San Jose, Calif., March 8-12. The game uses Numerical Design LTD's NetImmerse 3D engine. In addition to continuing the development of Dark Age of Camelot, Mythic and Abandon have begun production of an action/racing game named Capone. The prohibition-era game will be the first project for Init Games, the partnership's recently announced full-motion-video online game company.
