EA is working on a new The Lord of the Rings game... with Bioware?

We can read at HardGame2, one of the most important Spanish (and European) web of videogames, the next (This story has been translated by Google translator pages):

" Electronic Arts has confirmed that it is already working on a new video game The Lord of the Rings. However, EA have not comented anything about it, just as mentioned in his lecture to shareholders. It is not known if they have taken up White Council, which was canceled last year, but strong rumours suggest that BioWare Corp. may be in the draft after adquisicón by the American giant. Remember that EA has the license for this film on 2008, as well as literary, so it should not take too long to announce the first details."

Initially, HardGame2's editor ensure that Bioware is working on the new TLOTR game, but minutes later, they removed this statement without giving any reason.

For me, Bioware has make the best Star Wars game ever. With The Lord of the Rings, Bioware can make the best role game in years.

Oh dear God... did I just read that EA acquired Bioware? How in the world did I not know this before now?

Baldurs Gate 1 and 2 are in my top 5 games list of all time.

Maybe it is that one that was initially for the PS3 but was cancelled. I forgot what it was called, but it was something like The White Council.

((EA?)) I dread the final product for the PS3. They still don't 'get it' imo -- hopefully I'm wrong.

Biowares developers Skills will make of for the stupidity of EA.
I'm sure that it will be fine for both consoles x)

that gives me pause that Bioware is involved. A great piece of detail; not to be overlooked, in there for sure. LOTR is one of my favorite books, films, etc...I couldn't imagine it being gimped and hopefully Bioware takes the lead in core kind of way. I remember the EA versions on the PS2 and they were great imho. 8D

in hardly any game EA makes, and not a LOTR one, since their last efforts wasn`t that good either. If Bioware makes it though, i`m sure it will turn out great. Hope they can have a better framerate than they have in the past.
