Elevation Partners, a US-based equity firm who counts U2's Bono amongst its partners today revealed that it has merged video game developer powerhouses Pandemic Studios and BioWare.

BioWare is our favorite RPG developer with games such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire. The joint effort will allow the companies to share management, talent, and ideas.
