EA Buy BioWare and Pandemic

Looks like 360 owners have something else to cry about today, Mass Effect developers BioWare are being bought by EA with a view to multiformat releases, same with Pandemic.

“These are two of the most respected studios in the industry and I’m glad to be working with them again. They’ll make a strong contribution to our strategic growth initiatives on quality, online gaming and developing new intellectual properties,” said John Riccitiello, EA’s Chief Executive Officer. “We also expect this will drive long-term value for our shareholders.”

Good news for PS3 owners wanting some BioWare action, although the team are currently sticking to the claims that Mass Effect is 360 exclusive. We’ll see.
