It's been almost 5 years since EA bought them. I wager they had a 5 year employment agreement and after the SWTOR failure plus operating in the EA monolith, they decided enough was enough and didn't renew it. They've both got more money than they could ever spend so I can't blame them for deciding to enjoy it. They were instrumental guys in BioWare but they were only 2 many hundreds if not thousands. Hopefully EA doesn't push the stake in the rest of the way.
