BioWare Working On Multiple PS3 Titles

After the success of Dragon Age: Origins on the PS3, there’s little shock that BioWare are looking to create more games on Sony’s console. Answering questions as part of a live Eurogamer interview, the studio’s Dr. Ray Muzyka fielded the obligatory “Mass Effect on PS3” question from adjudicator Super Moderating Hero by deflecting somewhat, mentioning instead that there are multiple titles planned for the PS3.

BioWare’s not been a big supporter of PS3 so far. Is that going to change? And will the Mass Effect series ever make its way to PS3?

Ray Muzyka: Dragon Age was our first title for PS3, and it’s done really well. PS3 is a great system and we enjoy developing for it, much as we enjoy developing for 360 and PC and other platforms. I can say that we’ve got a few titles in development for PS3 right now, as well as a few for 360, across the studios I manage. But I won’t say what they are, since not all of them have been announced yet!

BioWare VP Greg Zeschuk has also since come out and stated that they’re hard at work on the Dragon Age engine for the inevitable Dragon Age 2.


“I can confirm that we’re doing a lot of work on the Dragon Age engine, and doing a lot of stuff to pump it — to make it visually super hot.”

It’s a safe bet that Origins’ sequel will be on the PS3, but what of the other “multiple” titles currently in development as intimated by Dr. Muzyka? Unless they have a console version of Star Wars: The Old Republic in the works (oh don’t even tempt me like that), or are planning to rejuvenate old properties such as Jade Empire, Neverwinter Nights or Baldur’s Gate, that only leaves new IP or Mass Effect itself. In fact, on their very web-site, it states New Next Gen Game. under “In Development.” Of course, Dragon Age 2 would qualify under this category.

With Rockstar recently proving that nothing lasts forever, how long would people be prepared to wait in order to get their hands on John/Jane Shepard’s sci-fi adventures on the PS3?
