Whatever it is, it’ll be out by March 2018
As discussed during Electronic Arts’ earnings call today, BioWare is planning to put out a new intellectual property before the end of March 2018. The project sounds like an action-adventure title with an emphasis on online and the sort of RPG character development you’d expect from the studio.
In a follow-up blog post, BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn described it as “a unique IP that will bring players together in exciting new ways,” and noted that details will follow in the “coming months.”
“In 2012, we began crafting a new universe full of new characters, stories, and gameplay. Our ambition is simple: Draw upon 20+ years of development knowledge and lessons to create something fun and new for you to enjoy with your friends. There’s nothing quite as exciting as building a new IP from scratch, and it will be even more thrilling for us to share more with you in the future.”
I’m not expecting much since there’s so little to go on, but in the tired words of Brett, “fool me once…” BioWare previously spoke about the unnamed game in very general terms back at E3 2014:
