Bioware Montreal Merges with EA Motive

By FallenXE - 7th August 2017 - 04:06 AM

It has been recently reported that Bioware Montreal, the studio behind the recently released Mass Effect: Andromeda, would merge with EA Motive. It was noted in early May that Montreal would be relegated into becoming a support studio and that it would provide multiplayer and technical support for Andromeda, which sparked rumours that DLC support for the game was shelved.

This after the much obvious hint at the end of the game on the presence of the Quarian Ark in the Andromeda galaxy and of how it did not want to be found due to an on-board emergency, which seems to be the perfect lead-up to any future single-player DLC. Of course since then the only content we have received are the APEX Missions and the recent patch was multiplayer-only.  

Bioware seems to be taking a break on the Mass Effect series in general, as lead studio Bioware Edmonton is working on their new IP Anthem and secondary studio Bioware Austin would continue their support for Star Wars: The Old Republic. Rumours also persist of development on the next game in the Dragon Age franchise being underway.

EA Motive, the studio that Montreal will be merging with, was founded in 2015 by former Ubisoft employee and Assassin's Creed developer Jade Raymond. The studio is currently co-developing Star Wars Battlefront II with EA DICE and Criterion Games, and co-developing an untitled Star Wars game with Visceral Games.
