BioWare’s next project will be bigger than Mass Effect: Andromeda—at least, according to the rumors.
Liam “Unseen64” Robertson, a known leaker, recently dropped what inside information he had on an episode of his Patreon-sponsored podcast. While the information is in no way confirmed, it paints a pretty interesting picture of BioWare’s next project.
“[BioWare has] been quiet about what their new IP is for a good while,” Robertson said (via IBTimes). “This is a project that’s been in development for around four years. It’s currently set to be revealed at E3 2017… I don’t know if they’ve said this publicly. It’s set to come out next year.”
He added that the project’s name, for now, is “Dylan,” which may refer to the main character—though Robertson wasn’t sure whether Dylan is an actual title or just a codename.
“Dylan is, from what I understand, a sci-fi themed game,” Robertson explained. “It is sort of Destiny-style, takes some elements from The Division, it has like MMO elements. Someone described it as a ‘semi-MMO.’ I don’t know much more than that… it is a huge scale project, perhaps the biggest BioWare has ever done. It’s bigger than Mass Effect: Andromeda, considerably so. It will have co-op.”
While there’s not much else to back up Robertson’s report, what he revealed does line up with what little we know about BioWare’s next project—namely, that it’ll be an action-adventure game that’s scheduled to launch before the end of 2018’s fiscal year (March 31st).
That date is less than a year away, so it’s likely that we’ll hear a report—and a confirmation of whether or not these rumors are true—from BioWare itself at this year’s E3.
