What's next for Bioware?

#1 Posted by Soapy86 (2621 posts) -

Bioware has made a lot of games. Most of them RPGs. Most of them excellent. Their games have taken place in a wide variety of genres and settings. High fantasy, "dark" fantasy, space opera, Chinese mythology, hard science fiction, um....Sonic.  
 
What sort of setting would you like to see Bioware tackle next? Perhaps a Zombie RPG? Or maybe a Super Hero RPG?  
 
Discuss.

What did they do that was Chinese mythology? 
 
And I'd like to see them tackle a high school setting.  That would be hilarious and potentially interesting.

@FluxWaveZ: Jade Empire
 
OT: I would like it if they tried something new, almost every game has been very similar storywise, I'm getting a little tired of it.
As for setting I would say Ancient Greece off the top of my head.

Ah, I had heard that name before but never knew what it was.  Interesting.

Low fantasy. Or maybe some soft science fiction.

I don't care what Bioware makes. As long as it has the Bioware logo on it, they can expect me to buy it.

Non-medieval high fantasy.

I like the idea of a superhero RPG, deciding what he/she looks like and giving them powers of your choice. Bioware could do that right, unlike City of heroes/Champions Online. Also, please no MMO.

I'm gonna go ahead and second the high school RPG thing. 
 
Something like Persona but, you know, catering to the tastes of the WRPG fan.

@FluxWaveZ: Pick it up on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1200 Microsoft Points, that is if you have interest in Chinese fantasy and are an admirer of most BioWare works.
 
I would enjoy seeing an RPG with a historical basis, such as WWII, the Crusades or some such.
Also, this sounds really cool.

A noir crime story RPG.

Actually, I think Bioware could do Alpha Protocol right, if they so wanted to.  I'd love a great classic agent/spy RPG.  That super hero idea sounds really neat, as well.
