Breaking News: Bioware Signs With Microsoft


Extra, extra! Read all about it! Bioware recently inked a deal with Microsoft to produce an exclusive first party game for the Xbox.

Currently Bioware is developing the surefire hit, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. They have also been responsible for such classics as Neverwinter Nights and Balder's Gate

“I’m very excited about this new alliance between Microsoft and BioWare,” said Ed Fries, vice president of Xbox Game Content at Microsoft Game Studios. “These guys are some of the most creative developers in the world. We’re looking forward to working with them to bring the creativity and great gameplay they’re known for to Xbox.”

“This opportunity to work on a brand-new intellectual property owned by BioWare as a first-party Xbox developer for Microsoft is very exciting to us,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, joint CEO of BioWare.

This is quite possibly the biggest to hit since... well it's been awhile. More news on this amazing development as it comes.

blaaaahahahahahaha that was funny...

I'm glad that KOTOR has funding up the ass now. I dont know what they are going to dev for Microsloth but I am looking forward to KOTOR.

BTW did any of you like neverwinter nights? I found it all right but there was WAYYYY too much talking and babbling on and text messages to read. Not that I hate RPGs but this one was exceptional on the read messages that this dude says...reminded me of Morrowind ugh...

Anyway hope this is good news.

That’s the luck of the xbox, it figures they sign a deal with Microsoft after they announce Kotor to be multi-platform, this was the title that would have catapulted xbox sales through the roof imo, who knows with a liitle luck and a few million dollars maybe this will also be an exclusive title. But I cant wait to see the next game for xbox from bioware, you cant go wrong with a name like bioware.

It would be cool if it were the Baldurs Gate series , but I would welcome an entirely new game.

I would say Bioware to M$ is what square is to Sony, literally.

I think it is going to the pc, not sure, but rest assures I think M$ will keep this on the xbox for awhile. M$ has this kind of mon…er… influence on people.
