Another one bites the dust.

The CEO of Elevation Partners (the previous holders of Bioware/Pandemic) recently became the CEO of EA so that could most probably be the catalyst to all of this.

in response:

Daz from Polycount said:
I was at EA for 8 years. For most of my time at EA HQ, John Ricitello was president and COO of Electronic Arts. He quit not that long ago, 2004 to be precise. He co-founded Elevation Partners with, among others, U2 singer Bono. Elevation Partners created a "super developer" through the purchase and merger of Pandemic and BioWare in *late 2005*. He *returned* to EA recently to take over the role of CEO when old man Larry Probst finally stepped down.
In a nutshell, he's spent way more time as a senior executive at EA than having much to do with Pandemic or Bioware. Google it and see for yourself.
