Bioware has a considerable number of projects on their plate
already...  Knights of the Old Republic, 2 Neverwinter Nights
expansions, a new company they spawned off called CodeBaby, and two
console games they have yet to announce much about. Plus, a MMORPG
requires a signinficant level of monetary and time committment both
in terms of development and continuity.  Probably not something they
are ready to commit to yet.
