Bioware’s new IP is one of the hottest topics of debate over the internet right now. The creator of Mass Effect series is working on a brand new franchise which is definitely something to be excited about.
According to manager Aaryn Flynn, Bioware’s new IP is coming along nicely. However, he stressed that fans should not expect to see the game anytime soon. It looks like we may have to wait until 2018 to see the game as Bioware is busy with Mass Effect Andromeda and its DLC in 2017.
We’re not going to talk about it until we’re confident about what it’s going to be and everything. We’ve been doing reviews with [EA CEO Andrew Wilson], and I think he likes it. So, knock on wood, we’ll keep working on it and we’ll keep doing it. Hopefully, you’ll hear more about that once Andromeda’s done and we’ve satisfied fans with that game.
He went on to say that Bioware’s new is going to be story driven and different from what they have been doing so far.
You have to ask yourself, ‘Do you want to do something that fiercely different or do you want to do something that’s very recognizable?’ ‘Do you want to take something that you’ve done and put a spin on it, or do you want to wipe the slate clean and say what would we do in this.’ And for us, what we said was we’re BioWare, so we have a certain kind of game that we love making and we know our fans would love, so we started with that and that’s a game that has as its heart stories and storytelling. So we decided we’re going to stick with that. We’re not just going to walk away from that.
Mass Effect Andromeda is releasing in March but we already have something to look forward once the game releases. What do you think about Bioware’s new IP? What are you expecting from Bioware? Share what you think in the comments below.
