BioWare Teases New IP

BioWare – the developer behind more than a few of our favorite titles – posted a rather cryptic tease on their blog regarding a new IP:

A Note About Our New IP

January 31, 2017 by Aaryn Flynn

Hi everyone,

As we’re working hard to finish Mass Effect: Andromeda, I wanted to take a minute to talk about our new IP. As our CEO Andrew Wilson mentioned, we’re creating a unique IP that will bring players together in exciting new ways.

There’s much more to say in the coming months, but for now, I wanted to offer this additional background.

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.



Although details at this point are scarce, there is no shortage of speculation already about the upcoming project.  A video hinting at the IP had been teased at E3 2014, while GameInformer is speculating that the game is likely NOT a role-playing game, but rather a continuation of a project started by former BioWare developer Casey Hudson.

Correction: a previous version of this article erroneously made reference to David Gaider, formerly of BioWare, working on this new IP.  In fact, he currently works for BeamDog.
