We’re very pleased with the progress of our new action IP from BioWare. The design is stunning. Gameplay mechanics are excellent, and the action will be exhilarating. The game is built around a live service, and through our creative process, we decided to add more to the disruptive new social design for our players.
Also, a rumor has been making rounds on the internet regarding the new IP from Bioware. According to the rumor, Bioware’s new IP will be revealed at E3 2017. According to the industry insider, Liam ‘Unseen64’ Robertson, that the new IP is codenamed, Dylan. He added that the name is related to the game’s protagonist and this new IP from Bioware will be revealed during E3 2017.
Dylan is, from what I understand, a sci-fi themed game, it is sort of Destiny-style, takes some elements from The Division, it has like MMO elements. Someone described it as a ‘semi-MMO.
I don’t know much more than that… it is a huge scale project, perhaps the biggest BioWare has ever done. It’s bigger than Mass Effect Andromeda, considerably so. It will have co-op.
With Mass Effect Andromeda launched we are hopeful that Bioware will soon reveal the game. What are your expectations from this new IP? Let us know in the comments.
