Electronic Arts have announced that BioWare Montreal will be closed and some of the developers have moved into Motive Studios.
EA said in a statement
We’re building out a new studio in Montreal, as we’ve told everyone. And we’ve hired over 100 people into that studio that are brand-new to EA. This is to build the new IP around Jade Raymond’s team that she’s been building. I was in that studio last month. And it’s a wonderful new addition to our team. And we brought our BioWare Montreal team into that same facility. So they now all sit in one new studio together.
The studio had led the development of DLC for Mass Effect series of games including Mass Effect: Andromeda.
BioWare Edmonton who developed Mass Effect: Andromeda and BioWare Austin where Anthem is being mad remain unaffected.
Anthem launches for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018.
