As development finishes up on the project, at least 20 former members of the Mass Effect development team have quit BioWare, a tipster has told CVG.
That really sucks. Kind of like that rumor with Incognito.
not exactly, Incognito seems to have lost most of their studio and they still did a pretty good job as you know.
The GC mass effect booth remained empty allthroughout. almost half of the EU press was disappointed with mass effect. the game would be getting very low scores indeed
I'm a PS3 fan but STOP PROMOTING ARGUMENTS makes fans of all types have bad names. Go away.
i think Bill Gates got banned for a month cause i haven't seen him run his mouth on here for awhile, ask for Nasim he is ignored by 122 Users and i doubt anyone can see what he's saying but he's probably to much of an Idiot to know that
are a good type of fanboy bubbles for him
dont those ppl want money after the game is released??coz i think it cud b a hit!!
Seems like this happens a lot in the industry..
That's what I thought.
they just wanted to branch out and form their own studio. This kind of stuff happens all the time in the industry.
I was thinking the same thing.
I hope they do, the gaming world needs another company like Bioware
That really sucks for Bioware. But more devs leaving a certain company can sprout other great dev companies.
yeah, or maybe they were contracted....and also may hint that the story will fully conclude itself leaving no room for a sequel etc. just speculation though lol That or Bungie take over haha.....
Weird. Always thought that BioWare was a pretty good company to work for. Maybe they were laid off since they were going for a smaller scale project next?
Bioware is a great company known for producing top notch RPGs for the past 6 years. So 20% of the team leaving aint gonna do a big effect. Unlike Incognito, which only has 6 left!
uuu Bioware is contracted to do all 3 mass effect games
It's not rare for a large group of developers to split off from a successful game studio. The people who made Stubbs the Zombie split off from Bungie and the people who made Psychonauts split off from Lucas Arts.
i wonder why...
most of the people that quit bioware are game testers, i just talk to one of them last week. it happens all the time, the game test that bioware hires mostly on a contract work term for them for so long. after the contract is up, they hire some new people. It comes with every big project that comes along there way. :P
Most software developers jump studios alot, this is nothing new.... Unless they are of some importance they can easily be replaced.
Sony paid them off (sarcasm for the Sony Droids that blame everything on Microsoft when something goes bad with Sony)
I really hope this doesn't lead to some kind of delay! I doubt it though. Either way, I can't wait for this game!!!
It won't. The date is set and Microsoft wouldn't want a game like this delayed into next year (it's a big part of their 07 line-up). The team is now just polishing the game and they still have a really big team left. No need to worry.
We all know how Warhawk turned out.It could still be a spectacular game.... see I can say good thinks about 360 games. :)
"It could still be a spectacular game...." wow... though your sole purpose was to mentioned a PS3 game in this non-PS3 article.. I think that's a start... It was painful right? Saying a possitive thing about a Xbox 360 game... your are probably feeling guilty and confused... You are just experiencing EmoFanboix ventricular anus.... Is when a fanboy brain is telling their console may not be the one with the best games.
No kid.I mentioned Warhawk because the same thing happened to them and the game still turned out great.Thats it,I don't think this is worthy news to cause people to bash Mass.I'm just warning them now, the game looked good before and more than likely it will still be a great game.
lol @ Bladestar, please do not even start typing nonsense about Shysun mentioning the PS3 in a 360 thread, or I'll REALLY make you look stupid and quote many comments that you have posted doing the EXACT same thing with the 360!
That was just embarrasing lol. Maybe you should have considered the context of Shysun's Warhawk comment before you replied rather than just seeing 'Warhawk' are reacting.
This is normal after a big project like mass effect....
Now lets hope EA's Madden staff quits! jk jk.
wow thats alot of ppl to quit
BioWare debunks CVG's rumor: "Sorry, but that is just untrue."
jajaj where is nasim now?
why are ppl talkin about ps3,wtf
alberta isn't in the middle of nowhere. The oilsands have enough proven reserves to last north america 100 years at current consumption.
that's right man, we make a alot of money right now here but the thing is the labor job is always hard work and at crap ass hour.
CVG just got PWNED!!!
Again: BioWare debunks CVG's rumor: "Sorry, but that is just untrue."
THIS IS BAD NEWS BECAUSE BIOWARE HAVEN'T MADE ANY DECENT GAMES AND THAT MEANS THESE UNTALENTED DEVELOPERS WILL BE LET LOSE TO CURSE OTHER GAMMING COMPANIES GOD SAVE THE GAMING WORLD FROM THESE ARSEHOLES.
