Can BioWare bounce back? | Podcast
We discuss the state of the Mass Effect and Dragon Age studio in the wake of key departures, available to download now
In this week's episode, Matthew, Rebekah, and James are joined by Mike Williams to discuss the biggest stories of the week.
Following the revelation that BioWare general manager Casey Hudson and Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah are leaving the studio -- for the second time, in Hudson's case -- we discuss the impact this could have on the company.
The conversation expands into exploring the 'wilderness period' BioWare has been in for some years now, and comparing it with other studios that have lost key talent but retained high expectations from fans.
We also look at the value of the Dragon Age and Mass Effect IP, the increasing competition the developer faces compared to its heyday, and our hopes for the future of BioWare.
