Ex-Mythic CEO starts new casual studio after two year hiatus

After disappearing for a little over two years, Mark Jacobs is back with casual game company City State Entertainment. The studio, located in Fairfax, Virginia, quietly opened in March and is working on an iOS and Android title for Q4 2011.

"I'm tired of strings and being told what to do by other people," Jacobs told Forbes.com. "[At City State], we're a very collaborative group where we talk about everything, and that's what you need if you really want to be successful."

The last time Jacobs was really heard from was back in 2009, when he departed MMO company Mythic, a company he founded, following hostile executive politics between Electronic Arts, BioWare and Mythic. BioWare Mythic is currently developing freemium title Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes.
