EA Delays Bioware’s New IP Into Fiscal Year 2019; Built Around Live Service
EA has moved the launch date for Bioware’s new IP into the publisher’s next fiscal year.
Initially scheduled for a release by the end of March 2018, EA has now announced that the new project from Bioware Edmonton’s has been delayed to further develop the live services component of the game.
EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson said this during the company’s most recent financial earnings call with investors. “Looking forward, we will continue our aggressive pace of innovation through experiences that capitalize on our technology, network and creativity”, Wilson said. “We are very pleased with the progress of our new action IP from BioWare – the design is stunning, gameplay mechanics are excellent, and the action will be exhilarating. This game is built around a live service, and through our creative process we have decided to add more to the disruptive new social designs for our players. To accommodate that, we are moving the launch date for this project into FY19.”
EA’s Fiscal Year 2019 runs from April 2018 till March 2019 so we should be able to enjoy Bioware’s new “exhilarating” project before the end of March 2019.
Not much is known about the new IP from the Dragon Age developer, although recent reports claim that the project is “huge”, and is currently codenamed ‘Dylan’.
