So if TOR flops ala age of conan then EA will go bankrupt?

Read the article again. In one single quarter, EA posted $524 million dollars worth of revenue. Taking into account that different quarters sell more or less than others, that puts them somewhere between $1 billion and $2 billion in sales per year.

Just in profit alone, they posted $221 Million. Again, that's somewhere betweeen $500-800 million over the course of a year.

A couple hundred million loss on ToR if it sold zero copies would hurt them, but bankrupt? Not a chance. If there was even a chance that it could, they wouldn't have agreed to do it in the first place. You don't fuck around and take risks that could sink a multi-billion dollar company for the potential of profit. New companies take risks, not established cash cows.
