I'd be more inclined to think that Worlds of Warcraft has more to do
with this cancellation than any airy law suit.

WoW seems to be everything that Mythica was aiming to be.  WoW and
Mythica, from what I have read about each of the games, aimed to
provide a much different approach to game-play, one that placed more
emphasis on quality of play over duration of play. This, it appears,
is a trend that will be followed.

Speculation as to why Mythica was cancelled by all of us 'outsiders'
is just that - but I'd venture to say that the powers at Microsoft
took a look at what WoW was doing and realized that in horse race,
Mythica would loose (no photo-finish required).
