I'd be more concerned about Hell having frozen over in that case.

You know, I wonder what happens to all the sold and buried IPs EA has if EA crashes, like Ultima, Lands of Lore, C&C and so forth? Maybe they would fall into more capable hands?

Hm, so it would be in the crash we must place our hope.

daoc, magic carpet, sim city, syndicate, populous, wing commander

lets hope they go bust, then someone who can do these games justice gets the license

 

p.s. ive worked out who ea will be buying - funcom i reckon - two ea guys on their board, swtor is a flop, they want a mmo.

I'd love to see something like Dungeon Keeper freed from EA's tyranny and scooped up by a decent indie dev.  If they chose to go the Kickstarter route, I have no doubt the funding would come pouring in.

Dungeon Keeper 3.  My dream.

EA burn in hell.

I think the pricetag would be too high even for EA.  Now if zenimax goes public, I may jump on that.

Actually I wouldn't be surprised if they bought THQ instead. (although THQ doesn't really have unique IPs, it's mostly licensed work)

I couldn't stand to watch EA buy Bethesda Softworks.  It's one of the few game companies I actually respect.

Y u lie 2 me Elikal?!

Through this other topic you posted one can find a link to revalations by a supposedly ex EA employee stating that:

"I was talking to my boss a few weeks ago and she literally said "EA's going to buyout another firm soon and a lot of people won't be happy about it."

I would accept that your personal guess about the company in question would be Bethsoft, though but it's clear where your inspiration for this topic comes from ;-)

Anyway, if true i think I'm going to cry.

That's a lot of EA trolls probably a few of them hide on these forums as well more than likely nice article though :D

Although this idea has kciked around my head multiple times, I always come back to leaning against it mostly because  I think Bethesda would dissolve itself.

 

Bethesda has been doing Elder Scrolls they way they wanted to do it for a very long time.  Way before the FPS + RPG genre broke any real ground.  Arena came out in 1994 right around the same time as System Shock and well before Deus Ex.  They pioneered RPG/FPS stuff.

 

They have been in Bethesda, Maryland from the beginning and still work out of that area.  The DC area is a good area for software development but its not like Silicon Valley where many american games come out of. 

They started out making it on their own and have slowly grown their games into major money makers from that.  They have stayed in the same area despite the developer base of that area being mostly government contracting and some other IT related stuff or corporate HQ type stuff rather than game developers.

 

If they got bought out I bet you they would just do what Bungie did but leave immediately.

 

EA might be stupid enough to force things.  But the lore of Elder Scrolls is such that without the original people it would never work, its so abstract and vague and unconventional in many ways.

I am sure that the Bethesda guys would hate to lose their IP, but in the end the people are much more important and I think they know that.

ArenaNet was bought by NCSoft.  Originally ArenaNet was independent and NCSoft was their publisher.  But NCSoft formally bought them and made them semi-responsible for handling things outside of Guild Wars for the western market.

 

ANet does not run City of Heroes, but they did play a major role is westernizing Aion for example.

 

I would be really suprised if EA could get ANet.  Also I the movers and shakers in Anet would leave.  NCSoft gives Anet pretty free reign and are actually looked to for providing guidance about the western market rather than the other way around.  There is no way an industry insider would be dumb enough to believe EA would do the same.

They will buy out Projekt Red.....

 

Just so there is no chance their honest, integrity filled business approach providing quality games starts to make people wonder what they've been settling for out of the EAborg.

And because the Bioware brand has taken a ton of PR hits the past 2 years, they need to rebrand it.  Maybe call it "Projekt Alberta, Projekt Austin, etc."

What about other older IPs like Legends of Kesmai and Silent Death? Those games being remade would be awesome.

I really hope not. CD Projekt owns and backs gog.com. Which means not only would that kill a small but good game developer but perhaps even the one good legitimate source to get older games that are no longer being distributed.

Excuse me, life ends as we know it on December 21st, 2012, so your prediction is neither accurate nor relevant.  :)

If Anet played a major role in westernzing Aion, then I will call myself very disappointed.  That statement, by far, has cast a cloud of doubt on the company's ability to potentially realize something remarkable with GW2.  I'm curious, how do you know that NCSoft gives Anet free reign?  They  don't appear to do that with any of their other investments, especially when profits are involved.
