Annnnnd there you have it. Big Daddy EA HAS STRUCK AGAIN!! Did you enjoy Mass Effect: Andromeda and can’t wait for the next chapter in the series? Well, I’m afraid I have some bad news for you: EA has put the series on hold after the disaster that was the ME:A launch.
According to Kotaku, Bioware Montreal has been turned into a ‘support’ company, with half of the team moving on to EA Motive to help develop Star Wars Battlefront II. The rest of the team will assist with Bioware’s newest IP ‘Dylan’ and other Bioware projects.
