Hey! EA has pulled one of their myriad heads out of their myriad asses! After Anthem‘s fucking failure, the company is letting BioWare go single-player only. This shit will begin with Dragon Age 4, which I am now sweating harder. Death to live services, bitches!
Well, I was excited for the new Mass Effect and Dragon Age games. But that was before Casey Hudson left the studio. Fucking again. As well, Dragon Age producer Mark Darrah has departed the studio. Just bleeding motherfuckers! Bleeding! Motherfuckers. Got me concerned.
‘Mass Effect’ lead writer has joined ex-BioWare devs at Archetype Entertainment to develop sci-fi RPG. How fucking awesome is this?
Holy fucking shit. I was already stoked about the idea of the ex-BioWare devs at Archetype Entertainment working on a sci-fi RPG. But, now? They’ve brought the lead writer of Mass Effect into the fold. This is so good.
Rumor: BioWare’s ‘Anthem’ is probably delayed until 2019, so we all know how this is probably going to go
Yesterday, Kotaku dropped an expose about BioWare’s upcoming game Anthem. Nestled within the story was the news that the game is delayed until 2019. But wait, it gets better! The title must also be released no later than March of that year, due to fiscal calendars and shit. Oh, Electronic Arts. Masters of setting studios up to fail.
‘Dragon Age’ creative director has left BioWare. The hinges on the company’s exit door gotta be tired
Dragon Age‘s creative director has left BioWare. It feels like just the more recent of a seemingly endless exodus from the company. But, like, don’t despair or something. Casey Hudson has returned to the company, after all.
I had a whole post typed up about this news, filled with my usual idiocy and snark. But then my computer froze. Oh well. Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s studio is dead, the franchise is frozen, and I’m happy about the former and sad about the latter.
Former Mass Effect lead Casey Hudson is returning to BioWare to serve as the company’s general manager. Hudson. Please. I beg you. Unfuck Mass Effect.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is a broken ass, piece of shit game, which no one cares about anymore, that was made by a studio which no longer exists. Thus, the news that it won’t be getting single-player DLC shouldn’t surprise anyone.
BioWare’s dropped the first trailer for their live service looter shooter buzz word buzz word answer to Destiny, and. Well. It looks goddamn fantastic.
Anthem. BioWare has revealed the project previously known as “Dylan”, and will be dropping more details at Microsoft’s E3 presser.
