BioWare Montreal Absorbed by EA Motive

BioWare Montreal is no more. It has been literally merged with EA Motive and remaining employees being moved to the studio to "help develop a new IP". EA Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen said, "We're building out a new studio in Montreal, as we've told everyone. And we've hired over 100 people for 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. We brought our BioWare Montreal team into that same facility."

The move means that BioWare studios have now been reduced to BioWare Edmonton with teams working most notably on Dragon Age 4 and Anthem, and BioWare Austin working primarily on Star Wars: The Old Republic.

No further details were given and certainly no discussion was present about the fate of any DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda or regarding the future of the Mass Effect series altogether
