    Also, SWTOR is made by Bioware, the financing wasn't used to create a studio, it was used to hire voice actors.
    Bioware Austin was created to make SWTOR.

    Regardless, it didn't take $300 million to open a studio, just to make a terrible game.

    No real time combat, and no rewards for crowning someone Emperor. Terrible game design is terrible.

    large publishers are just uselessn when it comes to the one thing they are supposed to be good at, making money


    You don't repeat the success WoW by spending several hundret millions on one projekt, you have a much better chance when you try several smaller projects and then invest in the one that plays out best.


    the only thing that that has been successfull in the MMORPG area is World of Tanks and they started small (and my guess is they print money right now)

    Mostly russian money, but I guess it is still traded in for money with real value [lol]

    At peak times in the US..15k people playing. Think the #'s are similar in EU. Russia, it is like 20x combined. The US and EU are couch change to them.

    This is going to be a spit in the face to the title "Elder Scrolls". They should rename it to "Older Trolls" .
