EA Suggests An Action Game By Bioware In Development
During their Investor Day briefing, EA teased that an action game by Bioware, Mass Effect developer, could be in the works.
A slide from the presentation shows that Bioware is potentially contributing to the company`s growth in action category. CFO of EA, Blake Jorgensen, said that the action genre could be lucrative for the company.
Bioware’s inclusion in the slide could be because of the reason that the studio is currently working on another action game along with Mass Effect Andromeda. However, there is a possibility that Mass Effect Andromeda has expanded beyond the RPG genre and is considered an action title, but it is just a speculation.
The other developer listed on the presentation is Motive Studios. This newly formed studio is working with Visceral Games for their next Star Wars game, and also developing its own new IP, which is being overseen by former Assassin`s Creed boss Jade Raymond.
Along with these Star Wars games, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is also in development which will release next year. However, EA did not mention that by next year they mean 2017 or the company’s next fiscal year which will start in April 2017.
During the briefing Blake Jorgensen said that a single successful action game could increase the revenue as much as $400 million, which could increase if multiple action titles are released in the market by EA.
As to what this mysterious action title by Bioware is, we will know soon enough. Hopefully we will see a gameplay reveal at E3.
