BioWare Founders say “We make the decisions, not EA”

Many fans are critical of BioWare when it comes to certain inadequacies that blame on Electronic Arts.  But the founders have a stern message for those doubters- they are still calling the shots on the games they make. “I always chuckle because we are EA, we’re BioWare — we’re both, and we still have huge autonomy in terms of what we do,” co-founder Greg Zeschuk recently told Eurogamer.
