On BioWare/Pandemic's Future

Gamasutra has coverage of a conference call about today's news that Electronic Arts is acquiring BioWare/Pandemic (story), though the focus is mostly on business. Interesting points are how care had to be taken to avoid conflict of interest for EA CEO John Riccitello, who stands to gain financially from his residual interest in BioWare/Pandemic parent VG Holdings, and how EA will now own the Mass Effect IP, and might (will?) publish follow-ups to the coming release that will be published by Microsoft. There is also a Q&A on the topic on Gamasutra with Josh Resnick, Andrew Goldman, and Greg Borrud of Pandemic Studios who discuss the implications of the move, and express their confidence that they will be able to continue as before under the new ownership.

Well you can kiss Bioware away. Everything EA touches, especially game companies dies.
