That statement is incorrectly attributed to me.  I didn't say that.

BioWare's license, far as I know, had nothing to do with a MMORPG.
Apparently, some people feel NWN is a MMORPG (it isn't in the
traditional sense).

Should BioWare have owned it?  Maybe it was an evolutionary step for
them -- but I imagine the design team going into a MMORPG probably
would have required a different team to work on it.  Or at least, a
much larger team.
