BioWare Austin today confirmed recent rumors surrounding the state of its 4v1 action-based MMO, Shadow Realms, confirming that the game has indeed been cancelled. According to the reports that first surfaced yesterday a source close to the BioWare Austin team stated that the game was going through huge changes and has been completely revamped since last year. Other sources stated different information from a similar source that led many to believe the game would be cancelled.
It was confirmed earlier today by , that Shadow Realms has been shelved in favor of developing new titles in the BioWare universe, developing content for their current titles, such as Star Wars: The Old Republic and Dragon Age: Inquisition, and to make way for new IP’s and a “massive year” in the Star Wars franchise.
rd with development of Shadow Realms. We fully recognize that this news is disappointing to some of our fans, so I want to explain more behind this decision.
[quote cite=” Jeff Hickman, BioWare Austin General Manager”]While the team did amazing work on the game concept and we got lots of great feedback from our fans at events and through other game testing, right now there are other projects for the team to work on within the BioWare studios for the coming year and beyond. We’ve got an incredibly talented team here at the Austin studio, and they are excited and already deep on new projects within the BioWare family, ones that will make some great BioWare games even better.
