EA Mythic, the Virginian studio behind Warhammer Online and Dark Age of Camelot, has reportedly been shutdown (via Kotaku):
When reached by Kotaku, EA sent over the following statement:

We are closing the EA Mythic location in Fairfax, Virginia, as we concentrate mobile development in our other studio locations. We are working with all impacted employees to provide assistance in finding new opportunities, either within EA or with other companies via an upcoming job fair.
Mythic was founded in 1995, and acquired by Electronic Arts in 2006.

Despite the studio's highly regarded MMO pedigree with Dark Age of Camelot, the studio's latest game was the 2013 remake of Dungeon Keeper for mobile devices, which drew much criticism over its microtransaction-heavy free-to-play business model.

Key former members of the Mythic team are involved in crowdfunded MMO projects Camelot Unchained, and Shards Online, as well as the recently launched The Elder Scrolls Online.
