BioWare working on new next-gen IP, more Mass Effect on the way

Yesterday, we found out that BioWare co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka will be leaving the video games industry (possibly for good), which left fans with some burning questions about the future of the studio. In an effort to reassure us that things will be business as usual at the studio from here on out, BioWare Montreal and Edmonton general manager Aaryn Flynn has published a BioWare Blog post of his own, giving us details on some upcoming projects BioWare is currently working on.

BioWare co-founders to exit games industry

Today is a sad day for BioWare fans, as studio co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka both announced that they will be leaving the company to pursue other interests. They aren't just leaving the company they founded either, but the games industry altogether. Both Zeschuk and Muzyka announced their departure from the industry in separate posts on the BioWare Blog, and it seems that we might be saying goodbye to both of them for good today.

Dragon Age III: Inquisition announced, built on new engine

We all knew it was coming eventually, and today BioWare and Electronic Arts confirmed our suspicions by announcing the next Dragon Age game. Dragon Age III: Inquisition is its name, and even though we don't know much about it at all, there are still a few talking points to get excited about. For starters, it'll be landing sometime in late 2013, but don't be fooled into thinking that this latest installment is being rushed out the door.

Electronic Arts tried to purchase Valve in the past

Electronic Arts tried to purchase Valve in the past

When you say "Electronic Arts" and "Valve" in the same sentence, most gamers will likely point to the digital distribution tussle currently going on between the two. Electronic Arts wants its platform, Origin, to become one of Steam's biggest competitors, and Origin has garnered a lot of negative comments in the past couple of years because of that. Valve and Electronic Arts have always had a seemingly close relationship though, and it might surprise some to hear that at one point, Electronic Arts was considering purchasing Valve, as The New York Times is reporting today.

Visceral shares new Dead Space 3 screenshots

Visceral shares new Dead Space 3 screenshots

We still have about five months to wait until Dead Space 3 finally arrives (yes, it's still that far off), but Visceral Games and Electronic Arts been kind enough to share a collection of brand new screenshots to help tide us over. There are 10 in all, and they give glimpse at a variety of different things including Necromorphs, space, and even a couple new weapons. There are also some images of Isaac himself in his new armor, and we have to say he's looking pretty good for a person who has been through two horrific encounters with the Necromorphs.

PopCap co-founder confirms round of layoffs

PopCap co-founder confirms round of layoffs

Sad news for a number of folks working at PopCap today, as studio co-founder John Vechey has announced a round of North American layoffs. The bad news doesn't stop there either, as Vechey also says that the studio is being forced to "evaluate the future of our PopCap office in Dublin, Ireland." There seems to be a chance of the Dublin offices shutting down entirely, which only makes the news go from bad to worse.

Will There One Day Be A Universal Game Console?

Will There One Day Be A Universal Game Console?

As I’ve noted on SlashGear before, I have what some might call a gaming closet museum. Over the last couple of decades, I’ve collected consoles, handhelds, and popular games, and kept them on the ready in the event I want to go old school and power on my old Atari 2600 or check out an NES title.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 16, 2012

As Thursday winds down, we're finding that we've got a lot of news to recap. Today Samsung used the MERL touchscreen table to show that Apple doesn't have much of a claim, before resting its case and asking the Judge to award it $421.8 million in the suit. Later in the day, we caught word that Judge Lucy Koh had asked Apple's counsel if they were smoking crack when they presented an extremely long document filled with witnesses they wanted to call for rebuttals. Yes, that really happened.

Electronic Arts reportedly up for sale

Electronic Arts reportedly up for sale

Electronic Arts may be on the market, if anonymous sources speaking to The New York Post are to be believed. Apparently, the massive games publisher is "quietly exploring a sale." If that's the case, then Electronic Arts has failed miserably at keeping this a secret. Talks are still at an early stage, these sources claim, but equity firms KKR and Providence Equity Partners are said to be two companies that are interested in making a deal.

Welcome to Tuesday, folks. It was a busy day today, and there's plenty of news to cover, so let's get right into it. It appears that the worldwide mobile phone market is falling a little bit year-over-year, and the Motorola DROID RAZR HD might be launching sometime in October. Fisker is currently at work investigating the fire that claimed one Karma EV over the weekend, and we received word of another EV catching fire during the Pikes Peak Hill Climb that took place in Colorado this past weekend as well.
