The studio behind the latest Mass Effect, BioWare Montreal, is now part of EA Motive

Motive is the latest studio in EA portfolio. It’s run by Jane Redmond, a veteran in the business. They are currently working with Visceral Games on Star Wars title, as well as the single-player campaign for Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

The news comes on the back of rumors that Andromeda’s poor reception is a cause for both concern and downsizing. EA responds in a statement to Tech Raptor:

“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.”

Two other BioWare branches are well and ok, with the Edmonton studio working on the highly anticipated Anthem.
