People can ignore a one-off failure, but when it starts to develop into a pattern as it is with BiowarEA then people aren't so quick to jump on-board and part with their hard-earned cash. You also have to rememember that you're talking about ever expanding budgets whilst their sales decline. And that's how the beginning of the end starts. You can bet the suits at EA are taking a long, hard look at Bioware right now trying to figure out what to do exactly.

Where is the one-off, let alone the pattern? Dragon Age 2 made a good profit according to EA and Bioware. It was a mediocre game, but it was also pretty low-budget and rushed. It was made to make a quick buck, which it did. Mass Effect 3 sold more than 2 or 1. TOR will make money eventually, it was never promised to be the new WOW and they said that themselves. Also the TOR studio is an all new one in Texas, and it shutting down would not have to effect Bioware proper.

This is all silly hyperbole, honestly.
