BioWare Montreal Merge With Motive Studios Is Said To Help Unnamed Star Wars Project
(Last Updated On: August 1, 2017)

EA has confirmed during its recent earnings call that Mass Effect: Andromeda developer BioWare Montreal and Motive Studios will be merging in a new Montreal office, in which former Uncharted director Amy Hennig and the unnamed Star Wars project by Visceral Games will receive help from this merged group.

According to publication site Gamasutra it is said that publisher EA is merging BioWare Montreal and Motive Studios. Additionally, this was confirmed by the CFO of EA, Blake Jorgensen, stating the above in the company’s most recent earnings call. Jorgensen went on to say that both studios will be linking up in a new Montreal office.

The publication site further reads that the new opening has already been filled out with over 100 new employees, and will now serve as the home for both BioWare Montreal and Motive Studios. Gamasutra also mentions the following information that Jorgensen had noted during the earnings call:

We’re building out a new studio in Montreal, 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.”

EA Motive was founded by Assassin’s Creed producer Jade Raymond, and is currently working on the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront 2 title alongside DICE and Criterion Games. The part that has a lot of people’s interest is the Canadian outfit helping Visceral Games fix-up and polish the upcoming and unannounced Star Wars project that is currently overseen by former Uncharted creative director Amy Hennig.

The publication site also notes the actions that BioWare Montreal is responsible for when it comes to the Mass Effect franchise, most notably the Andromeda title, which has some fans looking forward to the unannounced Star Wars project with apprehension.

Lastly, there’s no telling how the finished product of the Star Wars project will be, given that it will be a ways before we see anything noteworthy. However, the true question is what’s your thoughts on the Mass Effect: Andromeda team helping Visceral Games to make the upcoming action-adventure Star Wars project?

    NO! I don’t want those talentless hacks to ruin this game.

  • spambot

    err why are the reattaching a limb infested with leprosy wont it spread and rot everything else?

  • ItEotWaWKI

    EA, you were supposed to excise the cancerous tumor that is BioWare, not allow it to metastasize…

    God… Amy Hennig could write circles around BioWare even back when they were in their prime, now she gets stuck with the knuckle-dragging morons from their z-team? She doesn’t deserve this…

    • Feli Aslan

      Maybe we get lucky and she can sort the few competent people out while keeping the majority of quotas from ruining her projects.

    • Disqusted

      Considering EA flies in scammer Suckeesian to advise, I would think that EA is part of the reason why Bigotware has become SJW central.

  • s_fnx

    As if current Star Wars wasn’t cucked enough.

  • Bitterbear

    Hmm.. Whatever it’s going to be, we can narrow it down to either another Multiplayer-only game, or a single player game starring an overskilled but socially inept female character in her late teens.

    • Disqusted

      It could always be about some genderless bullshit.

      • Bitterbear

        Wanna bet it’s going to be as genderless as the lesboglass in Steven Universe?

  • Feli Aslan

    Member when Bioware was like THE western RPG name?

    • That now feels like such a long time ago.

      Amazing that CD Projekt picked up their mantle by default from BioWare’s suicide by SJWism.

      • Feli Aslan

        Its still a shame. I mean, I like games where I can decide whether I want to play as male and female and I kinda liked their option to have same-sex romances. I never really got into the Witcher Series, in the first place because the first one plays like crap.

        And you know, more than the mess with Mass Effect, what I pity most is that I would have loved to play the Dragon Age 2 Bioware had in mind, not the Dragon Age 2 they produced. I kinda liked the concept of Hawke, making him/her kind of a character that has one background and is really connected to the world, having a family, siblings, a story, while giving us the option of customize him/her at the same time. Not to forget that female Hawke was really beautifully designed. I really, really loved her and even in the flawed game we got, I really, really enjoyed the Isabella x FemHawke Romance very very much. I really think despite all its flaws, Dragon Age 2 was one of the RPGs with a great concept for a story and an incredible game, at least for me probably the best Cast of Characters among the Bioware Games I played so far. Not really the party, I loved the Arishok and Meredith was a great, great character, despite the end was not really the best.

      I remember when we had liberties such as free speech and freedom of artistic expression.

  • Mr.Towel

    Fuck no.

    I was keeping my eye ons Visceral’s Star Wars since it seems to be the only recent Star Wars universe to have the adventured Indiana Jones free light-hearted spirit from the Original Trilogy.

    Now even though BioWare Montreal is not directly involved on it, they are close enough to still infect its production with cancer. Fuck that. Not good news.

    BioWare Montreal
    Star Wars

    SJW cult meets SJW cult.

    To clarify, I’m not saying Star Wars fans are cultists. I’m saying Soros’ Disney turned Star Wars into Social Justice Wars.

  • Alistair

    Hmm Amy hennig is that the same Amy that got attack by SJWs and left uncharted. Is the reason uncharted went down hill?.

    • Yup.

    • ItEotWaWKI

      Hennig was literally the only good thing about Uncharted as far as I’m concerned. Characters and dialogue were great, gameplay was awful.

      • It was pretty apparent how much heart and soul she brought to the franchise she was axed from UC4. Druckmann and Strayley had no idea WTF they were doing.
