A new studio at EA’s Montreal location has been opened by Bioware, and the first project underway is going to be the highly anticipated Mass Effect 2.

According to GameDaily the team will comprise of about 30 people, and around 50% of those will be brought in from the existing Bioware team in Edmonton. GameDaily writes that some of these people worked on the original Mass Effect, while the rest will be newly hired.


Ray Muzyka, co-founder of BioWare informed GameDaily that; “We’re really excited about it, and we think it’s going to be a huge opportunity to tap into the talent base in Montreal while supplementing our existing teams in Edmonton and Austin, which are doing some great stuff on all the other projects BioWare’s working on,”.

BioWare is hoping to release Mass Effect 2 during EA’s fourth fiscal quarter, which means the first quarter of 2010, so about a year from now. Muzyka also noted that BioWare have a few secret projects that will be announced at a later date. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Neverwinter Nights 3!

    Hi, the first letter was sent to my billing address, not my shipping address. I do not know if it is just me or other people today had this difficulty but I just wanted to let you guys know. It was definitely disappointing not getting the letter where I am correct now!

    So I’ve been attempting to think about this in some non-typical ways. Everyone has been lonoikg at this from a DLC-purchase tactic, or bad plot programming, or at best, an attempt at real-world indoctrination of players What good could it gain EA/Bioware to go through all this? I mean, after all these quotes of differentiation of endings, this multiplicity of similar video to wrap stuff up can NOT go unnoticed by QA. I posit the hope that this had to have been all planned for some reason, and that April 1st will possibly be a target date for some DLC release, or some method trigger a way to continue the game. I spent very little playtime using the first disk, and some DLC was already found hidden, so maybe there is more there? I am intrigued by the AI Child’s statement about having more (choice) than you know . It was quoted that there would be some unannounced voice commands, so has anyone tried saying anything unusual during the endgame sequence? Maybe I’m just being hopeful, but FFS, they HAD to know this would not fly well with the public.
