That's just PR, internally there was a push to get Frostbite across the board on all of their titles. No one ever wants to switch away from Unreal Engine, the toolset is so robust and well documented. They simply didn't want to pay royalties and Dice pushed for it at the right time. Not by coincidence, it started when Soderlund from Dice became more and more entrenched in the corporate culture of EA.

I mean, let's not go giving EA a free fucking pass here. They MANDATE that every studio uses that garbage shit engine, and then refuse to give them support because FIFA needs it, and then took the few devs within Bioware that knew Frostbite and put them on FIFA. It's literally like EA just WANTED Bioware to die.
Which, I have to say, they've done a good job of.

I'm sure he came in his pants thinking about having everyone pay for the infrastructure deployment, then paying as customers for the connection, then having businesses pay to access the customers, then having the customers pay to access the content they want, then charging everyone a recovery fee for any taxes the ISP has to pay.

Of course, immediately after that he went on his show and told his listeners he was lying in court, which cost him custody rights with his children. Because judges don't like to hear they're being lied to.

Picard stated with critical accuracy that with the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably. Those words were uttered as a wisdom and warning. The first time any person's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged.
Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.Limiting the kind of hate and fabricated news that Jones peddles in order to sell bone broth has more of a positive effect on public discourse than negative. It is a last resort of course, but a recent quote I read recently struck home. Nazi imagery was born in Germany and stamped out with censorship post-WW2. Their people decided the danger from the ideology too great to be tolerated. Those rules still apply today and yet the country manages to score highly in freedom indexes. But now those symbols have taken root in the US.
