Word has come out that Electronic Arts has pulled the trigger on a merger between BioWare Montreal (the studio behind Mass Effect: Andromeda) and Motive Studios, one of EA’s youngest studios.
EA confirmed the news after a spokesman responded to earlier statements that were supposedly made during EA’s quarterly conference call by CFO Blake Jorgensen. EA confirmed the news with the following statement:
“The teams in EA Worldwide Studios are packed with talent, and more than ever, we’re driving collaboration between studios on key projects. With multiple major projects in development in Montreal, we are merging BioWare Montreal with Motive Studios. This is an ongoing process, but there are many exciting roles and opportunities for everyone on the team.”
