They’ve fucked game series and studios since forever, not just Westwood (C&C etc.) but also Visceral Games (Dead Space etc.), Origin (Ultima etc.), Mythic (DAoC etc), Maxis (Sim City etc) and a bunch of other ones.
EA are cancer, I frown every time I get reminded of their existence by PL refs who have the ugly EA logo on their sleeve. Then again people keep buying their games, so I doubt they give a fk if people complain about SWBFII or any other single game, it’s probably just free publicity, they know the same people will buy their next FIFA, Need For Speed or SIMS game anyway. Consumer power is zero with this one as with many other companies.
