Electronic Arts has officially completed its acquisition of BioWare and Pandemic, and placed the studios under the EA Games label.
The acquisition formally fills a gap in EA's portfolio in the RPG and action-adventure genre. The studios will be bringing ten new franchises to EA based on six wholly-owned properties.
BioWare most recently released the Microsoft-published action RPG Mass Effect for Xbox 360, which released on November 20 and and has sold 1.6 million units to date worldwide. The company is also developing a Sonic RPG for Sega and is rumored to be working on a Star Wars MMO.
