Knowing Bioware... it will be in a year, but seeing how EA just bought them... it will be on the day of release...

Now we wait for the PS2, Gamecube, Wii, DS and PSP versions to be announced.

Once you buy a company all contracts cease with whoever they had them with?

The dark, consuming cloud of EA continues to consume, and attempt to kill, PC gaming. (Please note the word ATTEMPT)

Thank you, EA.

No but no contract is final and EA has the legal muscle to break a contract...

I vote MikeC saves up and has nVNews buy up EA. It's the only way to be sure. Well apart from nuking the site from Orbit.

EA should make their own console and only release its titles for it... man they would be the best selling console ever!

it could be worse.

they could've succeeded when they tried to buy ubisoft.

unless you think bioware is better than ubi.

i wish the hell they'd make a damn mdk3. shiny won't do it, dave perry won't do it, so it would be cool to have a new mdk3, and i hate mmorgy's or whatever the hell they're called, because they prevent other games from being made due to the fact they're so damn common. it's been 7 years since y2k when mdk2 came out. Damn, i was in the 7th grade. That was in another lifetime.

This year was also the year mdk was a decade old, rel. in may 97 i think.

According to the news the studios will for the most part stay the same, like Mythic has when EA bought them.

Yeah, you go on being paranoid... EA Mythic (the only change that happened to Mythic) is benefiting alot by EAs deep pockets. They area able to work on games longer without rushing to the shelves aswell expand their community ties (Closed Beta boards are pretty active).
