Thanks to Jason for the reports.
I think they've got enough for one more game in the tank, but if it's a failure then EA will probably start hacking the company up and closing parts down.
Let's first wait and see (if we ever get that information) whether things will actually change in the near future.
Was disastrous working conditions the trouble though? I thought it was the bad management and lack of focus.
Yeah, but I meant more along the lines of "I thought bad working conditions weren't the initial cause of the issue". The big reveal of the story wasn't that there were bad working conditions; it was what caused those things to happen.
It can definitely change to the better. The studio that started the whole EA spouse thing apparently now has great working conditions.
According to AskAGameDev on Twitter, who knows devs who worked on Anthem, it’s met it’s short term sales targets but but not long term (yet)
At one point people liked working for BioWare. The question is if the change is mostly due to the EA acquisition and whether it can be substantively reverted.
That's silly to say. The factors that make EA EA won't go away but Bioware went through significant leadership changes. They could easily change the leadership overnight and it would have an even more negative or positive change than leaving in the current management to figure things out.
