Following the failure of Mass Effect: Andromeda, rumors had been going around for the past few months concerning a possible coalesce between EA’s development team BioWare and another unnamed organisation. This happened after Mass Effect: Andromeda, the sequential successor of Mass Effect 3(it takes place between Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 but with the course of time you will find it slowly unraveling as a sequel to Mass Effect 3) received mixed reviews from the audience and was heavily slammed by the critics due to poor animation, performance and glitches.

A few days ago EA sprung out of their cave confirming the merger saying that BioWare Montreal will be merged with a newly formed organisation known as Motive Studios which is another subsidary of it’s parent company, EA.

An EA spokesperson quoted this to TechRaptor:

“We’re building out a new studio in Montreal, as we’ve told everyone. And we’ve hired over 100 people into that studio that are brand-new to EA. This is to build the new IP around Jade Raymond’s team that she’s been building. I was in that studio last month. And it’s a wonderful new addition to our team. And we brought our BioWare Montreal team into that same facility. So they now all sit in one new studio together,” stated Jorgensen.

And further said:

“The teams in EA Worldwide Studios are packed with talent, and more than ever, we’re driving collaboration between studios on key projects. With multiple major projects in development in Montreal, we are merging BioWare Montreal with Motive Studios. This is an ongoing process, but there are many exciting roles and opportunities for everyone on the team.”

BioWare continues its work on new titles – including the highly-anticipated game, Anthem. What’s coming next for BioWare is very exciting, and we’re thrilled to have Casey Hudson returning to lead the studios in Edmonton and Austin.”

By what the spokesperson said, it could be comprehended that only the BioWare branch located at Montreal is getting merged with Motive Studios which is currently headed by Jade Raymond while BioWare Austin continues to work on ‘Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO’ and BioWare Edmonton works on their newest Sci-Fi Open World game ‘Anthem’.
