Big difference if the game is profitable to cover on-going costs monthyl vs covering costs already concurred years ago. I'm not so sure the game is overall profitable, just that today it brings in more monthly than they put into it monthly.

Yeah but simply being profitable on a month to month basis isn't enough to keep a project alive. It has to be more profitable than all the other things you could put those resources into.

EA isn't going to keep Bioware Austin running and developing the game if it is only making a middling profit. They will gut the studio and particularly outstanding employees will be offered jobs at another EA studio.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
