Mass Effect 1 and 2 Lead Writer Drew Karpyshyn is Working on Anthem

Drew Karpyshyn left BioWare in 2012, but returned in 2015 to work on the Star Wars MMO The Old Republic. In a response to a twitter user, he has recently confirmed that he is also working on BioWare’s new IP, Anthem. It is unknown it what capacity he is contributing to Anthem, but this is most definitely encouraging news to fans of his previous work. As well as Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2, his credits also include Baldur’s Gate 2, KOTOR and Jade Empire. Check out the tweet for yourself here, or simply gaze at the image below:

Anthem was revealed at E3 2017 to rapturous applause. We still don’t know much about it, other than it’s looks a little like a Titanfall, Destiny, and Mass Effect mash-up. It is certainly visually appealing, and inspires and sense of awe, so maybe this could be a return to form after a few, let’s say, hiccups as of late. Hopefully Drew Karpyshyn will bring his pedigree to Anthem and strengthen it as a whole. What do you think of the game? Could is see BioWare once again stamp their authority on the world of gaming? Let us know in the comments below.
