BioWare on Mass Effect MMO, new projects

Old Republic will be supported for "years" after launch

BioWare has revealed that it has a host of new announcements up its sleeve for the coming months - as it wryly responds to a CVG enquiry about a possible Mass Effect MMO.

As you can see in the below video, CVG asked BioWare boss Dr. Ray Muzyka when we could expect a new MMO entry in the studio's flagship series. He replied: "Some of the ideas you mention are definitely possibilities."


However, Muzyka clarified that Star Wars: The Old Republic was to be the EA-owned company's focus in the MMO space for now, and that the game would be supported "for years" after launch.

Muzyka also teased new projects - and further played with our intrigue by hinting that BioWare had a "bright future" planned for both Mass Effect and Dragon Age.

"We have some really cool stuff going on with our Virginia studio out of BioWare Mythic," he said, "[where] we're exploring new types of online play.

"We also have some new things in the pipe we haven't announced yet out of our Edmonton studio... We're obviously looking at Mass Effect, Dragon Age - they're epic franchises, and we have more things planned in the future. Mass Effect 3 is the beginning of a Galactic war. The future's bright."

Mass Effect 3 is due for release worldwide for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in March next year. Star Wars: The Old Republic will hit PC later this year.
