Discussing two BioWare games in one location – during The Game Awards, the team (which had two of its veterans depart a couple of days ago) showcased both of its upcoming games with a short video each.
We recently discussed how Casey Hudson (the former general manager of BioWare) and Mark Darrah (the former executive producer of the Dragon Age series) have left the studio, and they mentioned in their departing posts that the Mass Effect and the Dragon Age IPs are in good hands, and now, both new games were partially showcased.
The new Mass Effect is possibly going to link to the original trilogy, as the short video seems to have Liana in it from the first three games. Going by this, Andromeda is not going to be part of the next game’s plot, but as the development itself is in an early stage according to BioWare, it’s too early to predict what the game will contain, when it will launch, or what it will be developed for.
Electronic Arts and BioWare double-stacked at The Game Awards, as they provided another teaser for the new Dragon Age title. Here’s an overview of the game by the publisher: „The world of Dragon Age needs a new hero—someone who can take on the evil forces threatening Thedas. Get a first look at some of the new locations you’ll discover and the factions fighting by your side in the next chapter of Dragon Age.” It still doesn’t give us much of a hint on what to expect after Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The two games have no release windows or target platforms yet – the Dragon Age game will possibly hit the shelves first, and it coming in 2022 could be plausible. That means Mass Effect’s next instalment might not arrive before 2024, especially if Electronic Arts does not rush BioWare like how they did with Anthem or Mass Effect: Andromeda…
It’s a good idea to be patient.
