Best quote from the article - "With EA having their own take on what gamers want going forward. I do wonder if what makes Bioware historically so good, is exactly what EA don’t want anymore... When Bioware hear EA walk around saying things like “gamers don’t like single-player, story-driven games anymore” and other such quotes (as the imperial march music plays in the background), they must be shuddering."

It's so true. Bioware and EA are just not good bedfellows anymore. I'm not hopeful for the future of Bioware if they stay with EA.

For the love of God EA, why haven't you let Bioware develop a proper story driven singleplayer Star Wars game? Have you forgotten that they made the best sci-fi game franchise in history - Mass Effect? It should have been the perfect storm. But oh no... rinse repeat loot/grind mtx shooter ftw /s

"With EA having their own take on what gamers want going forward."

The problem with this sentence is that EA doesn't care what gamers want at all. 'What we want' is automatically superseded by 'what makes EA the most money'.

This couldn't be more wrong. EA wants to make games that every single human on the planet love and want to spend money on endlessly. They're completely delusional.

The problem is that the company is run by investment bankers and they wouldn't know a good game if it slapped them in the face. They're completely incompetent. They think some market research gives them all the answers to questions they don't know how to ask with zero context as to why consumers do what they do or who these consumers even are.

That's why they said gamers don't want single player games, they had market research that they didn't know how to read. They made stupid decisions, then blamed their workers for it. Fk them.

Not to mention they already did make easily one of the best Star Wars games, Knights of the Old Republic. It should've been a no brainer for EA once they originally got that Star Wars license.

Bioware shares the same mentality as EA, even if separated there will be issues with either company.

God, what you said it beautiful! What Bioware does and what EA want are two different operations.

It would be great if Bioware could separate from EA but I don't know if that's going to happen. Would like to see what they could do if they weren't tied to EA.

Bioware is just a shell with a face that EA wears.

You would think the studio that delivered Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect would be the go to for a new story driven Star Wars game. It boggles my mind with how out of touch EA is!

They are a cancer but it's not just them. I can think if s few who would probably fumble just as bad!

Activemessiah937d ago

Split up? you do know what EA does to their studios right?

Can't help but remember the Arnold quote from Commando.
"Remember when I promised to kill you last?"
"Yea John you did!!"
"I lied!"
