I'm sorry, but Bioware has nothing to do with EA Battlefront II - that's DICE's baby.
I'm currently residing on both US Servers - Satele Shan & Star Forge - formerly from The Harbinger and before that Gauntlet of Kreshh.

BF2? wait what? there is already a BF2 that was launched years ago...
That's promising. Bioware is at its best when working on a new IP rather than trying to force out a DA:3 or a ME4. Both of which they did do and both of which were of low quality. The artists need to be able to let their creative juices flow! Something they can't really do when they are shackled to a 6+ year old IP.

Depends on what systems they decide to include into BF2, it's probably much more of a focus for EA due to being cross-platform unlike SWTOR. Add into that the boxed sales per release, plus the "season pass" and DLC sales and the revenue would definitely make this more of a focus for EA.

yeah that will get confusing two games with the abbrieviation BF2. i think it's time battlefront is called BFr2, besides BF2 has been linked with battlefield 2 for years before and everyone knows that. i will call it BFr2 from this point to avoid confusion.

if there is something going on with DA i hope it doesn't end up like it did with MEA or DA3, in both cases they followed the same path, they were inadequate compared to their previous products.

DA3 low quality? Is that the same DA3 which won GOTY? ME4 can't even compare but they're being put together?

Haven't played it yet but everything I've seen has lead me to believe DA3 was a big success for them. I know MEA was a loser (still gonna play it though). And I have heard and seen stuff that makes me agree that something is coming for DA at some point. Is BW working on Anthem? I was interested in Anthem until I hear it was a MMO. I figured it to be just another shooter but it looks like a persistent world type, They might as well be getting the red pen out on that one to start figuring up the losses.
