Mike Laidlaw, former boss of BioWare’s Dragon Age series, has joined Ubisoft Quebec to work as creative director on a new project.
You’ll know Ubisoft Quebec as the studio which lead development on this year’s brilliant Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and the enjoyable London-based Assassin’s Creed Syndicate before that.
It’s a fascinating move. Quebec’s Odyssey is an enormous Assassin’s Creed role-playing game clearly influenced by BioWare. It has a main character shaped by your choices, missions with various branching story paths and the ability to romance other characters found in the game.
