BioWare Montreal’s History
BioWare Montreal was built from the ground up to be a standalone studio. Formed in 2009, it has gone through a carefully managed growth process that has allowed us to develop and grow the unique culture BioWare is known for. The first steps of this plan have been to partner closely with our Edmonton studio in developing Mass Effect, one of the industries most beloved and acclaimed franchises. With the fairly recent announcement that the creation of the next Mass Effect game will be driven by them, the BioWare Montreal team has crossed a major milestone and is very much looking forward delivering a worthy and successful addition to this world-class franchise!
