PS3 ownersm your wait for a game from BioWare is coming to an end soon with the release of Dragon Age: Origins this Autumn, and BioWare couldnt be more excited to develop for the console.
Dr. Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of BioWare and Vice-President of EA, has said to Videogamer that it’s ”exciting” to finally be developing for the console.
“It’s new. Because we already had experience on 360, that kind of got ahead a little bit, but now we pretty much caught up. Actually it was very exciting. People on the team were really pumped to work on it. They were like, wow. We have a lot of people that like doing new stuff and trying new things, and they were like, wow another platform, can’t wait! It’s been good.”
He also says in the interview that the PS3 is now something they’re ”totally behind”.
“It’s going to be exciting having a PS3 game out finally. We only did one PS2 game – MDK2 on PS2. It’s not like we have anything against Sony by any stretch. It’s just that from a publishing perspective we worked with Microsoft for five years – that made it so easy to focus on Xbox and we didn’t have to worry about the PlayStation platforms. But now, since being part of EA, it just makes complete sense. It’s something we’re totally behind.”
This may add more wood to the fire that BioWare are looking at possibilly bringing over the Mass Effect trillogy, or to an extent at least Mass Effect 2, to Sony’s console after it emerged last night the ME IP was owned by EA, and not Microsoft Games Studios. But it may not happen just yet, according to BioWare.
It’s out this Autumn for PS3 & 360.
