Well, let me clarify what I mean by "kill off Bioware's Name".

While I think most of the talent from the earlier years has moved on (hence why Bioware is dead to me)... the more they shit out failures, the more the brand has been tainted. If enough failure is produced, EA will most likely buy another famous RPG Studio...and pretty much rename Bioware to "FamousRPGStudio-West" or something.

Much like the presently known "Bioware Mythic" in charge of the slum lorded MMOs. (Formerly Mythic Entertainment, then EA-Mythic).

And although Mythic wasn't all that great of a Studio, and isn't that big of a loss... Yes... EA destroyed them after Warhammer failed. And if you recall... Mythic went through several rounds of layoffs over 2-3 years before they were insignificant enough to roll into Bioware. See the pattern?

How many more failures Bioware has left before they get the same treatment, I don't know... but I can't imagine they have wiggle room for too many more.
