BioWare Corp. today announced that they are working on two new games, both roleplaying games based on two new intellectual properties, created and owned by BioWare. The first of the two un-named titles in production is being developed for the Xbox, the second for the PC.
Today, Microsoft Game Studios and BioWare Corp. are announcing that they have signed a first-party publishing partnership for the new Xbox game under development at BioWare.

The second game, a BioWare Corp. PC roleplaying property, is under development but has not yet been presented to any publisher.

"The partnership with Microsoft Game Studios is a perfect fit. They clearly share BioWare's vision and commitment to quality. To be publishing BioWare's first intellectual property - an all-new, epic Xbox roleplaying game - is a great opportunity for us. Of course, we also intend to continue our existing publisher relationships developing selected licenses", said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Joint CEO of BioWare Corp.

"As part of our long-term strategy, we continuously seek out premier game developers," said Ed Fries, vice president of Microsoft Game Studios. "BioWare has repeatedly delivered compelling games. Our publishing partnership with BioWare further represents our commitment to bring only the best experiences to gamers."

"Our PC developers are already hard at work on our other new 'secret' PC roleplaying game", said Dr. Greg Zeschuk, Joint CEO of BioWare Corp. "Creating our own universe is a great opportunity for us to deliver a game that is uniquely BioWare, and we look forward to creating an immersive BioWare RPG experience in the tradition of games like Baldur's Gate™ and Neverwinter Nights™," he concluded.
