BioWare has quite the conundrum on their hands. Every time they make a statement about Anthem, fans and non-fans alike seem to jump onto social media to cry out about how worried they are about Dragon Age and Mass Effect’s future. It’s a worry that is understandable if you’ve not paid too much attention to the news, but it’s also getting a little old to hear BioWare trot out the same statement over and over again.
This time the reason behind fans distress seems to be due to BioWare’s statement about Anthem being an influence to games like Dragon Age and Mass Effect in the future, such as Anthem’s reactive storytelling with Fort Tarsis changing as you progress throughout the story, as well as the inclusion of new content every week.
Only the reaction from fans has been more negative than positive, which no doubt helped the decision of BioWare’s general manager, Casey Hudson, taking to the social media platform Twitter to set some things straight once and for all.
On his Twitter, Hudson wrote this:
“Some weird stuff going around about how our future games will be influenced by Anthem. Of course when we do a Dragon Age game it will be designed from the ground up based on what Dragon Age should be. Same with Mass Effect.” He continued, “Anthem is a specific thing that’s unique from our other IPs in many ways. What carries forward is what we learn about game design, which is a constant evolution.”
BioWare have recently came out to say that they would be putting Mass Effect and Dragon Age first after they were completed with Anthem, but whether that will satisfy fans remains to be seen. What we do know is that the answer to some fans concerns about Dragon Age and Mass Effect will be answered in time.
