The thread title doesn't reflect Jason's tweets... like... at all.
"a lot of autonomy" is not the same as EA giving devs "autonomy".
Also, "Executive pressure is more subtle than "Make this game!" - it's resource maneuvering and "Where's your version of FIFA Ultimate Team?" is such a laughable defence for EA. I mean, they're funding the game and like we saw with what they did with Visceral, they will resource starve the shit out of your game if they can't see how it isn't going to be a lootbox/MT riddled mess AKA FIFA Ultimate Team. They're basically saying, "make what we want you to make or you'll get the smallest budget possible to complete your project"... how is that autonomy?
There's clearly issues with Bioware as a studio since some of the older leads/management and devs left, but the speed at which many on Era go to "Now we have the gotcha for if Bioware get closed, papa EA did no wrong!" is... unsurprising I guess *shrug*.
Just forget about all the Star Wars drama.
