You know what I’d do, if I’d acquired the world’s most successful RPG developer? I’d set them to work making RTS games. Yes. That makes sense.
Say what you want about EA, they are constantly striving to push the bar for facepalm-worthy decision making.
Now, it’s worth noting that this is the ‘new’ Bioware studio, Bioware Victory. Sure, this could just be EA trying to take advantage of the ‘Bioware Brand’ and slapping the name ‘Bioware’ on a completely different, completely separate operation that won’t in any way dilute Bioware’s focus, draw off any of it’s talent or change the original entities’ culture.
Sure. Could be. 😛
Good old EA, in a world of uncertainty, you can always rely on them. Their proud track record of buying up studios at the height of their popularity and then proceeding to destroy what made those companies popular in the first place shall go unblemished.
