More M$ and Digital Anvil

IGN got an interview with Microsoft's Ed Fries and Digital Anvil's Chris Roberts about M$'s recently announced buyout of Digital Anvil. Apparently Erin Roberts is staying with the company after all. Unfortunately, the author doesn't ask the questions everyone is dying to know: Why did Chris Roberts quit? and Will Freelancer be changed in any way? Thanks again to Blue.

UPDATE! Gamespot got some more information from Chris Roberts, answering those two all-important questions:
Roberts assured us that FreeLancer wouldn't undergo any major design changes whatsoever, as its design, interface, and artwork is finished, and the only thing left to do is to generate content and flesh out its storyline.
Roberts made it clear that he is leaving Digital Anvil of his own free will; he stated that he had no desire to be part of a large organization, and cited his similar decision to leave Electronic Arts nearly five years ago.
