Enter private equity funding

Or as Casey Muratori would put it - And now the dancing turns German.

There was an announcement today that Pandemic & Bioware merged, that Elevation is sinking $300M into them, and they'll aim to become a new 'uber studio'.

There's a lot of talk at the game summit about this announcement.

It may be premature to say, but this looks like it may be looked back upon as a defining moment for the industry.

Attention publishing oligopoly: You are no longer the only belle at the ball!
