It appears that BioWare has secretly unveiled its new IP at this year’s GDC event. Alistair McNally, BioWare’s Senior Director of Creative Development, tweeted that he was wearing a T-Shirt at GDC that had their new IP on it. Unfortunately, it seems noone was able to capture a photo of that T-Shirt, therefore it remains a mystery what this new IP could actually be.
Also it was fun to walk around GDC2016 in a t-shirt with our new IP on it and no one batted an eyelid.

From what we know so far, this new IP is being developed by BioWare’s Edmonton studio.
According to BioWare’s Aaryn Flynn, this new IP will give the team the chance to have a “clean sheet of design to start at the most fundamental set of principles you can have.”
This new IP aims to feature a contemporary story, and a world that is as big and as imaginative as anything BioWare has ever done before.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
