BioWare Talks About New Next-Gen IP, New Mass Effect Title & Dragon Age 3

Following the departure of Bioware founders, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk last night, the studio has provided details for upcoming projects.

Bioware mentioned that they are working on an entirely new IP, which seems to be in the works for next-generation consoles.

The most exciting being what sounded like a new IP for next-generation machines.

Aaryn Flynn, general manager of BioWare Edmonton and Montreal said:

Casey [Hudson, Mass Effect series boss] and his leads are putting together their vision for an all-new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology.

Even more content is inbound for Mass Effect players. Mass Effect 3 will see to more DLC packs for the single-player and multiplayer mode; while Mass Effect 2 will get the Omega DLC pack in autumn which has players teaming up with Aria T’loak to retake her home lands from Martin Sheen’s evil Cerberus.

If the added DLC packs are not enough then the news of a new Mass Effect will definitely surprise you. Though, BioWare said that they are unsure at this time of the game’s direction.

Finally, Flynn talked about the recent announcement of Dragon Age 3: Inquisition which is due for release in fall of 2013.

I know this might be concerning for some of you but the leaders at BioWare have had some time to think about it – to think about how the games, the fans, and the creative teams would move on without the two guys who started this organization back in 1995.

We – including Ray and Greg – think the studio is solid and the team here is ready to embark on a whole new era of games.
