BioWare, known for massive franchises like Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, will reportedly be announcing their new IP relatively soon. Patrick Soderlund, head of EA Studios recently spoke with GI.biz about the new IP and where BioWare is headed in the future:
“We’ve been very open about the fact that BioWare is working on a new IP, and we’ll get to talk about that in the not too distant future,” he explained. “We have other teams working on new IP as well. I think it’s about a balance, right? Making sure that we continue to push what great looks like for Battlefield or FIFA or Madden–or Star Wars, for that matter–while continuing to invest in something new.”
EA is expanding and just opened a new facility in Stockholm, Sweden which houses a branch of DICE — developers of Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront. With the company growing at such a rapid rate, it is no surprise that BioWare, a fan favorite developer, is working on something new.
BioWare’s new IP was announced in May of this year, though details were almost nonexistent. It is now looking like we will see something very soon from BioWare.
