EA studio Victory Games, best known for the Command & Conquer series of strategy games, is now Bioware Victory.
The news follows Bioware's announcement at the VGAs on Saturday that it's next title would be Command & Conquer Generals 2.
Jon Van Canegham currently heads up the studio as general manager, and has been with EA for a little over two years. He was previously founder and president of Trion World Network.
In February Canegham spoke on the official Command & Conquer blog about a new AAA entry into the franchise.
"We're not just working on a game, though. Our general focus is on the future of Command & Conquer. That means updating a lot of the core technology to create a stable base for future development, and leveraging that work on this first game."
Interestingly, there's no mention of Bioware in the post.
Victory is the fourth studio to come under the Bioware name, following Bioware Mythic, Bioware San Francisco (formerly EA2D) and KlickNation's recent transformation into Bioware Sacramento. This makes eight studios in total with Bioware brand.
