This from the ever knowledgeable EA CEO John Riccitiello:
“There’s been a fair amount of talk on various blogs describing [Old Republic development] spends that are vastly higher than anything we’ve ever put in place,” he said.
“Don’t read gamer blogs as having any substance. They bring a chuckle, but they also bring a frustration for those that are being responsible with the management of EA’s R&D dollars.”
Glad we bring a smile to your face, sir.
It’s been my experience that when I CEO essentially says, “Hey…don’t look over there!”, we should probably go find out why he doesn’t want us looking. So, I think the reports of what EA is doing with TOR should be looked at even closer now. At the very least we’ll get a good chuckle over it.
