BioWare’s EA CEO Andrew Wilson announced that the game would be delayed for anything up to a year.
The game has been described as an ‘action-adventure’ title with ‘RPG-style progression’ and will be a live service game, although it is not an RPG.
Wilson said on an investor call, announcing the delayed game, that “We’re 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. The game is built around a live service, and through our creative process, we decided to add more to the disruptive new social design for our players. To accommodate that, we are moving the launch date for this project into fiscal year ’19.”
The studio have been working on the unnamed game since 2012 and this new IP will be the first new game since the studio kicked off the Dragon Age franchise.
