Analyst Colin Sebastian suggests that Electronic Arts, which bought BioWare in 2007, may be cutting jobs and game franchises after disappointing sales of games such as Rock Band 2 and Mirror’s Edge.

A pity Mirror's Edge didn't sell well. I thought it'd be a winner for sure, seeing as how it was so way out of the rest of competition. Hope everything turns out well and EA gets back to form soon.

EA assimilating Bioware was the worst thing to happen imo, I haven't purchased any EA-related games, nor do I really plan to buy ToR. But hey, that's just my opinion.
