MMO Week in Review: The myth of the BioWare magic

It was never magic. It was always the blood, sweat, and tears of the hardworking devs, ya morons.


If you were hoping that if BioWare just kept its head down and buffed up Anthem, it could avoid the trainwrecks of some other recent launches, then you can join me in being disappointed this week, as the company met a major publication’s exposé of the game’s chaotic development with a missive and memo that seemed more miffed at journalists than at management. (But maybe don’t panic yet!)

Meanwhile, Z1 Battle Royale saw layoffs, while Guild Wars 2 reshuffled its content teams ahead of its next update.
