EA Suspends Mass Effect Series

  • Bioware Montreal’s Development team was plagued by an expensive and trouble ridden development cycle for Andromeda which had EA and Bioware Executives ready to pull the plug on ME series even before the release of the latest entry in the franchise.
  • Several key members of the development team are being moved to other studios and projects.
  • EA is also dedicating extensive resources to new IP including new Star Wars entries.
  • Any way you stretch it though, this seems to be a loss and failure for Bioware, even if it is coming from one of their branch development teams. Why has Bioware had so much mixed results with titles when they were previously known strictly for RPG gold?

E.M #1 Kendall says:

We need a Halo movie.  It could be done so well if the right people were on it.  It could be the next great Sci-fi hit. Dark and gritty with an awesome protagonist and his AI sidekick, with unique aliens and consequences.  That’s what I’d like to see be made.

Super Co-op Squad  is a weekly talk show all about discussing gaming, comics and the movies and TV’s show that spawn from them with unique perspective, from the minds of three very different gamers. SCS is a crew of three friends who love chopping it up about games and all the media they love and thought, “Hey, we do this all the time anyway so lets do it in a podcast!”.  Join the Super Co-op Squad as they talk about current gaming trends, upcoming titles, movies & more,  and give their  (mostly) unbiased opinions on everything from the current state of gaming to which Marvel and DC movies are best!  Come and enjoy great banter between great friends about all the topics you love (and love to hate) each week!
