EA Buys BioWare, Pandemic: What does this mean for KOTOR?

We all know that EA is a company who loves money, at the same time they're a team who loves to SPEND money, and they have done such by buying Pandemic and BioWare for 775 million dollars. Now, EA like I said loves to make money and they know KOTOR is a cash cow.......maybe with this purchase BioWare might be more inclined to make KOTOR on EA's orders. Thoughts?

They still need LA's premission so unless they get that EA can't make bioware make KOTOR 3 because it would be illegal.

Obviously......it's just that BioWare wasn't interested before because they wanted to work on their own IP.......but now with EA buying them, if Lucas wants BioWare to make it, they'll ask EA, and maybe EA will be a lot quicker to jump on that chance knowing that EA is easy money just waiting to happen.

That is quite a lot of money up front. I guess EA really wants BioWare.

Guess it means nothing for KOTOR after reading this:

EA becomes the owner of both BioWare's and Pandemic's original properties. Jade Empire, Mass Effect, and Dragon Age are among BioWare's original IP, which does NOT include such licensed hits as the Dungeons and Dragons-based Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, or the DS Sonic RPG.
