BioWare is working on a new unannounced IP outside of existing franchises and series, and it will be revealed soon according to EA.
Although everyone in the gaming sphere is looking forward to BioWare's new Mass Effect: Andromeda RPG, the studio is also working on something completely brand new. We've gleaned lots of evidence from EA financials and past coverage suggesting that BioWare's new IP might be an action game instead of an RPG, and we also know that it will have extensive online capabilities.
"We've been very open about the fact that Bioware is working on a new IP, and we'll get to talk about that in the not too distant future," EA studios exec Patrick Soderlund said in an interview with Games Industry Biz.
A few months ago Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah teased a cryptic logo that's likely tied to the studio's new IP. We're not exactly sure when EA will unveil the new IP, but past investor documents indicate the game could release sometime in 2017.
"We do have a new IP coming next year, we haven't yet announced it, but it's something that you'll see probably coming up soon," EA exec Blake Jorgensen said in EA's FY2016 earnings call.
