BioWare looks to start swinging episodes like it was 1993 again (LL Cool J? "Back Seat
"? Too obscure?). The Mass Effect
developer recently pledged to support all of its confirmed upcoming titles with post-release episodic content, including Dragon Age
and Jade Empire: Special Edition
. BioWare even claimed that its "other" (read: announced) titles would be treated to digitally distributed content, suggesting the studio's total adoption of a longevity model built on episodic releases. The strategy will span both "console and PC" platforms, confirmed CEO Ray Muzyka.
"Consoles," eh? Could BioWare be expanding its console development beyond Xbox 360? After all, a DS title is in the works
