  1. BioWare writer Drew Karpyshyn, who worked on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect 1, and Mass Effect 2, hast the developer for a second time. Karpyshyn originally left the esteemed RPG studio in 2012 to work on novels and other non-game projects. He returned to BioWare in 2015 and was reportedly working on the company's new IP, Anthem, until he left last week for the second time. Writing on his blog, Karpyshyn said he's quitting BioWare this time to work on more original novels, including a sci-fi graphic novel, as well as freelance gaming work. Karpyshyn said he will not discuss why he left BioWare, though he expects people to speculate as to why. "There is no dirty laundry I'm just waiting to air," he said. "And please don't ask about any BioWare projects I've been working on--just because I've left BioWare doesn't mean I'm going to start blabbing all their secrets." Karpyshyn's first post-BioWare video game work will be something with FoxNextGames and developer Fogbank Entertainment. This will be an episodic narrative game that is based on an "acclaimed Fox IP," but we don't know which one. BioWare's new IP Anthem is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In his statement, Karpyshyn said working at BioWare can be "exhausting." "Everyone who works at BioWare pours their heart and soul into the games they are making. It’s creatively demanding and--at times--exhausting," he said. Originally set to launch in 2018, Anthem is now slated for release in 2019. The delay was reportedly due in part to development issues, though EA indicated it moved the game instead to release it during a less-crowded time. Continue reading...
  2. Following the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda in March, Kotaku reported that staffers from developer BioWare Montreal were being reassigned to EA's Motive Studios, which is also based in Montreal. Now, EA has officially confirmed the merger. "The teams in EA Worldwide Studios are packed with talent, and more than ever, we're driving collaboration between studios on key projects. With multiple major projects in development in Montreal, we are merging BioWare Montreal with Motive Studios," an EA spokesperson told TechRaptor.net. "This is an ongoing process, but there are many exciting roles and opportunities for everyone on the team." BioWare's other studios, including those in Edmonton and Austin, are still operating as normal. Recently, BioWare announced that veteran Casey Hudson returned to BioWare to become the general manager of the Edmonton team, which is making Anthem. The BioWare Montreal developers who moved to Motive Studios are reportedly working on Star Wars: Battlefront II. The studio, which is headed up by Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond, is also working on a "gigantic," Assassin's Creed-style action game. Continue reading...
  3. BioWare's new IP, Anthem, is in the "science-fantasy" genre like Star Wars instead of the science fiction genre like Mass Effect. This is according to BioWare GM Aaryn Flynn, who spoke to CBC about what genre the game falls into and how it compares to the studio's past work. "It's in a genre we call science fantasy," he said (via NeoGAF). "Very much like Star Wars, very much like the Marvel Universe where you see a lot of amazing things happening but we don't worry too much about why they are happening or how they're happening; the science of it. "Mass Effect is a more a real hardcore science-fiction IP [but Anthem] is much more about just having fun in a game world that lush and exotic and really sucks you in." Anthem was announced at E3 2017. Developed by BioWare Edmonton, the studio behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Anthem is an action game set in a "vast open world." The game pits players in the role of a Freelancer tasked with exploring unknown planets and protecting humanity. You'll be able to outfit your Freelancer with customisable exo-suits called Javelins, which can be equipped with a range of new gear you either craft or acquire. [attach=full]147[/attach] The game is being "built around a live service" and features a heavy emphasis on cooperative play. EA has confirmed that up to four players can team up to complete missions together. You can listen to the full CBC interview to learn more about BioWare's thoughts on the project. Like a number of other of titles, the game will run in 4K and feature other enhancements when played on Xbox One X. You can watch the full gameplay demonstration from Microsoft's E3 press conference here. Anthem is scheduled to launch in Fall 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
