EA is fucking CANCER.

Sym Sym

guys, should i buy MAE? because currently Playstation store have 50% discount for it

MatheiusS

I'm not buying Anthem.

Patrick Concannon

Good fuck them for messing up mass effect!!! I would rather have it die then play this SJW BS!!!!!

leomiles1

Good riddance.

Chris Middleson

Thank god, game was SJW gamergate trash!

Alexander Wicked

Why is that people seem not to understand that when you make a sequel to a game/movie/show where fans had established a strong connection to the characters, and you go and change the characters completely - you can almost be sure this gonna be fucked up? So many examples.
You can make a perfect game but it's JUST NOT THE SAME THING without the characters we loved. At least bring some of them, bring something from the good old times to reminisce, if you killed half of them in the original. Or leave that shit alone and make a completely another game, call it Andromeda and don't try to cruise with the wind on the franchise name alone.
The same reason why DA2 was not the same, and DA Inquisition felt like a dull shadow of it's former self.

espartacos1

They should know we want beautiful and sexy female characters and non gay experience in space, andromeda was abut colonizing meaning gay people have no business going there in the first place

Rarely Comment . . .

What do you guys expect from EA?

They destroy Franchise...
Pressuring the developer on release date...
WTF they are hiring!?!

PaulIvanish

I guess social justice and feminism are not good for business, and that definitely includes the video game business.

Panagiotes Koutelidakes

fuck

kendall raeee

i can't say i'm surprised

Domino Godbane

Sad news !?! This is a GOOD FUCKING NEWS! This game is the worst and the most boring Mass Effect game i ever played. fuck this game and who made this shit

Giampaolo Mannucci

Can't we just all come together and agree about NOT giving anymore money to EA and let them rot for good?

VRTXProductions

Good

Salem Andrada

If the modding community takes after it, creates more content, I might buy it in a year or two.

taco_

BRING BACK SHEPARD ONLY HE CAN SAVE THIS FRANCHISE.

Malak Adil

great ! wasted my money by pre-ordering this. never gonna pre-order from bioware. will buy when the price is 10$ no matter what the game is from bioware. some stupid 4 years 3 or 4 kids made this game .

Adam Griffin

This makes me not want to even try Anthem, what's the guarantee that EA share holders won't kill Anthem prematurely like they did Andromeda? The internet troll hate bandwagon killed Mass Effect, and now it has the power to kill other IPs

Hannah Kirsche

I'm Commander Shepard and this is my saddest video on YouTube.

Stan jean-baptiste

Wow...this game is actually good, very good,so sad

Skandalos

ME:A killed the franchise. It's dead. For good. Move along people, it wont come back. Lets hope people learn from their mistakes.

Albertosaurs Channel

EA. The Devil of Video Games. Along side with another shitty company, Konami. #Fuck_EA #Fuck_Konami !

fast0025ify

This is what happens when SJW's tries to make a game!

fabAB912

So glad this social justice jihadi garbage has been shut down.

agrey832

mass effect isn't dead, but it IS in a coma like state, which makes sense given all that's happened. also, Bioware is working on Anthem and DA4. That being said, Bioware seems to be self aware right now and trying to repair the damage that was done by acquiring Casey Hudson back. mass effect was his baby, and like all of us, he still sees the potential the franchise still has. there's most likely going to be another 5 or 6yr gap before the next mass effect game comes out. that being said, given the way Andromeda turned out, the next entry will most likely be a prequel, and most likely the first contact war

Knjo0101

With this announcement anyone holding out any hopes for any kind of DLC can pretty much kiss them goodbye.

Lazy Mitchell

The game is so good though.

Dustin Fulk

its all about big studio corporate greed, all the assholes at EA CARE ABOUT IS LINING THIR POCKETS AND SO THE LOYAL FANS OF BIOWARE AND MASS EFFECT AND ANYTHING THAT IS RELATE SHOULD PURGE EA AND THE PLAYERS DON'T HELP EA DON'T BUY ANYMORE OF THEIR PRODUCTS DOESN'T MATTER WHAT IT IS DON'T BUY IT AND WHEN THEY REALIZE WHERE THEIR MONEY WAS COMING FROM HAS DRIED UPI THEY WILL EITHER FIX IT OR LOSE THEIR STUDIO AS WELL. THE ONLY WAY TO GET A POINT ACROSS TO JERKS LIKE THIS IS THROUGH MONEY AND WE THE CONSUMER PLAYERS ARE THEIR MONEY TREE SO DON'T BUY FROM THIS FRUIT ANYMORE ITS FORBIDDEN JUST LIKE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN EA IS POISON SO STAND UP AND DON'T BUY THEIR PRODUCTS AND SHOW THEM WE THE FANS AND CONSUMER ARE NOT GOING TO PUT UPI WITH THIS CORPORATE BULLYING

JAYMK7

So if Anthem fails are the going to act like that game never existed to

jaime garcia

To be fair, the game was not great. Not bad but not to Mass Effect standards.

Jimmy

good, fuck them. It was a piss poor excuse for a game


There's not even porn of it, just think about that.

Thewizard king

Well this is what happens when all people give the game is hate instead of trying to tell them way to do for there sequel that go t shelved

Kale Serpent

I see tons ofnpeople going crazy, defending or attacking it.... but to be honest, im at the spot of... who cares. Im over me when i hit that ending of me3.

Its funny to see them fail due to their actions tho.

DGamer

I've only just started playing and I realise it's been patched so my experience is different than most, but I'm loving it so far. I really hope it's not another 5 year wait or worse, the end of ME!

joseph cunha

I dont think them closing is due to andromeda in this line of work this happens all the time when contracts end new ones begin in bisness's in my opinion the game did fairly successful what alot ppl fail to see its a prequel which means its own story this probly caused because the title is mass effect i belive they should of just called it andromeda if they did the drama weve seen most likely would of never happend hopfully we will get a part 2 or a good dlc at the verry least ive enjoyed my time with andromeda but hate to see it end

Reith Dynamis

Dragon age Inquisition release date November 18, 2014
Witcher 3 Release date May 19th of 2015

..... that's half a year and neither were featured under the same year to be in competition for the game of year category.... what?

Kinoshita Yuuko

:(

Mister Wheyne

So much for focusing on leftist political agenda and being SJWs. Everybody is full of all this politically correct garbage. It shouldn't have place in the real world, let alone on a virtual one, where you go to have fun and forget typical real world bullshits.

Kuri Cosmos

Thanks for reporting on this, other places kinda glossed the issue without the conference call and other information. Very informative. I'm just glad no one lost their jobs, Montreal isn't too far from where I am admittedly.

Jason Hamelin

When Anthem flop will they close Edmonton too?

Garyson Marshall

So many years just to waste my money, I hope they just stoped this shit

Asa Timmons

LOVE how mass effect has to die and possibly die because of a studio's very very... VERY poor choices.

Hakuna Matata

I like it :)

Mr. Prezident

I still hold out hope that they will continue with ME: Andromeda! So many questions left unanswered! And all those that hate the game because of all the changes need to stop hoping for the same game over and over! Andromeda may have had faults but it made up for it with the combat system and NPCs not being absolute retards! This game felt more alive than any other Mass Effect!

Rob Nickerson

GOOD RIDDANCE

Noles

EA will devour all

dagdabreemie

You can start to see that $#!+ drip 'n trickle into SWTOR :/ Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

Dominus Devacore

How far are you up there.. I can't even imagine how you cope with the smell.

Avalon D

I hope they hired based on merit experience and skill instead of gender politics and identity politics with retarded ideology

AscensionStudiosCA

Call it what it is: They didn't hire the best and brightest. They focusing on hiring SJWs and checking off ''diversity'' boxes. Diversity of talent is what allows a studio to thrive. They did this to themselves.

Idazmi7

The developers of Mass Effect: Andromeda actively didn't care about developing the plot, or the facial animations, or anything else: they only cared about adding in as many alternative sexualities, minorities, and their other ideological opinions into the narrative as possible, regardless of their value to a plot and lore that they honestly didn't care about. They saw Mass Effect as nothing more than a vehicle for their nonsensical opinions to gain acceptance - not as a video game with real fans and a real lore that they needed to give a damn about. They're an embarrassment to Bioware, EA, and everyone else involved. It's a good thing they were shut down, and I hope they never touch another game again.

Ben Drowned

Sad thing is that they set them up for failure.

rendell rendell

Is Bio closing? I won't buy it, I imagine the new project is better! Said by the Brodz

Earl Smith

be warned that now EA and Bioware have thrown the Mass Effect series under the bus for Anthem, Dragon Age is next and The Old Republic will be after. EA wants something new to fuck wit and damn the rest of their money spending fans, seriously the only way we can get I through their thick skulls is to shoot Anthem down hard.

Enuma Elish

Fuck EA, the damn vampire. MEA wasn't a great game by any means but shutting down the group that made it? They can fuck right off. EA is hellbent of destroying every ounce of talent in the gaming industry.

Dylan Gaffney

Blame EA!!!

Usman Habib

This is BS. Time to kiss my hopes goodbye
Sorry

The Senate

What a ride! The the memes were the bast part of andromeda, it's one of the free games that I just stopped playing mid story and didn't go back to for a month, even the multiplayer wasn't as fun as ME3 despite all the "improvements".
"You have failed me for the last time" - EA to Montreal

Tribun

bioware sucks they killed mass effect

Creative Gaming

this raises a question in my hed: what does this mean for the chances of a quarian ark DLC cuz all we know about it from the epilogue is its out there and thats about it

Noles

Anthem will crash and all of BioWare will be absorbed by EA.

WorkGalaxy

(I might get some hate for this but screw it, I can't keep this in any longer) most people say it's Bioware that killed the franchise but if you ask me, it's not their fault, it's the haters fault, even after they fixed all the annoying things in the game, you all couldn't stop hating it, was it because the story wasn't like the other stories from the other mass effect games, if you all don't remember, the mass effect games has always been about some new alien race that could turn other aliens into them, if you all stopped hating every single small thing in the game then maybe you all would've remembered that, but no you just couldn't stop hating the game, could you, now (unless one of the other Bioware teams save it) we may not get any story DLC, meaning no Quarian ark, no other races both old and new, no new planets to explore, NOTHING, all because you guys couldn't stop hating it, well I hope you all are happy, because of you the franchise is dead!

James Cage

dude they expanded into a larger company. DEAL WITH IT n drop the childish conspiracy theories

Pat

EA just needs to start releasing games that are finished and polished. Andromeda should not of launched with all of the glyches and crappy animations that it had. I have been losing faith in EA since SWTOR and it just keeps going down hill.

SuperGamer

Last great games from BioWare were Knights of the Old Republic

Mass Effects were good but i found KotOR far better

They should of found a way to save Shepard

NCR Ranger

I'm genuinely surprised that people are surprised by this news. EA wants those profit margins to stay as high as possible. I saw physical media of ME:Abomination were low as hell, especially for a AAA game. I'm quite sure there not only will not be another Mass Effect, but EA will most likely shut the rest of Bioware down after they force them to shit out one last Dragon Age. Sorry if this is negative, but we've seen it time and time and time again. Crowbcat's video hit the nail on the head at the end.

Salom902

I knew this would happen

E.J.

I don't think the big bosses at EA realize how much brand loyalty people (like me) have for BioWare. I can't help but feel that they are wasting BioWare and ruining themselves in the long run.

Rome

The story is an absolute mess. Mediocre. The baron quest on the witcher 3 had much more substance than the whole MEA arc. I love the planetary exploration and environment but thats basically it. I cant remember some characters because of how useless or undeveloped they were..i was surprised at the end that i had a crew member called Gil.

Carlos Daniel Alegria

Press X to pay respe- oh they made Andromeda? Lol nah fuc them

E N D E R B O R N

Fuck EA and fuck SJWs for ruining my favourite franchise ever.

Simon Allan

They have totally ruined the game beyond recovery ME is finished.
Storyline and characters just not there in andromeda. Peebee was the only one that made me laugh.
The others were either to ugly boring or to pushy how many times do you need to say I'm not homosexual in a video game?
Pathetic attempt at what should of been a brilliant game like the other 3.

Max Cop

Main problem was even not in facial animations, but in bad, boring, not interesting characters, bad level design, new aliens are too milky (where extreme like Hanar and Elcor), story holes (almost each hole covered by SAM), mmo like GRINDING, EVERYTHING explored BEFORE YOU! It could be not so bad if they called it just ANDROMEDA, not ME:A, asking 60$ for this. But EA and B suggested that players will eat this SH. Not this time.. Main question is why was not charged guy who was a racist to white? Employees should be selected according to their skills and not by whether they are a minority (fem, gays, black etc) or not.

CoolGuy Steve

GIVE ME KOTOR 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

aleflippy1997

That's what you get when you give the task of making a follow-up to one of the most acclaimed and expanded franchise in video game history to a team of novices. They could have made a spin-off to expand the already-existing trilogy. Or take the perks of having a whole other galaxy in a far future to do whatever they wanted. But no, we got a toned-down Mass Effect 1 which was worse in every way safe for graphics and gameplay.

Thanks for ruining my favourite franchise by taking the easy road. At least you get what you deserve.

Rick Rudimentary

Thanks to SWJ's and Feminists. About 10 of my friend refused to play this game because of tall the SJW bullshit!!!!

Skyler Maves

I still hope for DLC but after this fucking bullshit I'm not expecting it any time soon. I hope Anthem bombs just as karma.

strzaskany alf

you cant say "studio, who developed".

gdsm93

Such great news. From an absolutely horrendous multiplayer - seriously, you're forced to host a game and wait 10-15 minutes for people to join unless you'd like to rubber band off of someone's Walmart-wifi - to the underwhelming story, to the botched facial animations, to the human females purposely "downgraded" to look atrociously ugly...this is fantastic news. The only thing they got right was the gameplay. Everything else was lackluster or worse.

For once, EA got it right. They shut down a studio that disappointed the investors and the fans alike. So much wasted money; I wouldn't doubt if EA decided to abort the entire Andromeda storyline at this point. Maybe write it off as a "what-if" spin-off and return to the Milky Way either before or after the Reapers.

Joel Li

Sad that the studio is closing. But Mass Effect Andromeda was bad. They took all the bad things of Dragon Age and Mass Effect and ran with it. Removing all the great stuff. But that is just my opinion.

Anguirus86

Well I'm boycotting fuck ea and fuck bioware

SangoProductions213

I just hope they leave Mass Effect to sit in its peaceful grave after finishing the trilogy.

Hero of Kush

Shame this game had potential

Thomas Kaimann

Andromeda was such a disappointment. They added some cool features but in all reality it wasn't even close to the original three. one being my personal favorite. It was just so much i couldn't just enjoy. From story to gameplay i just felt that it could have been so much more.

Edward Santillan

Holy fuck some of u guys overreact...the game wasnt even that bad. Combat is solid and the story was ok.

Herr Christoff

Thank god for that Mass defect was literally cancer. Just a playground for SJW's

Borne Stellar

Andromeda was alright. I didn't hate the game. For a Mass Effect game, though; it was horrid. Perhaps developers should hire people based on experience/skill rather than gender/race/sexuality/etc etc.

I'm pretty sure the lead facial animator had ZERO experience prior to Andromeda, and just got hired because she's an EMPOWERED WYYMMYNNZZZ who cosplays. What a joke, dude.

_ Zoinks

DOWN WITH CANADA

Nocturnal

Thats the latest Mass effect game ? the guys look handsome but the girls look very unattractive..Intentional ?

Michael Daniels

I don't care how good Anthem looks, the next and only EA product I will purchase will be Mass Effect. They've got to show me that they care about their IPs and thus the fans that love them. So whether it's DLC or a new ME title...EA...I'm out until you square things with Andromeda.

Indi126

I wouldn't be surprised if we have to wait much longer than five years for the next Mass Effect, if they do make another one

jmlordoftherings

Good.....they did a SHITTY job anyway. But I think it is a Managerial issue. I can't believe they crap this game out because they have Anthem to the oregional team.

I am very disappointed with the Game and the Drama. I am thinking on taking the Game back!

Jack Aydostan

Their facial animation looks the same as the old Thunderbirds models.

MrsCitty

I personally loved MEA even though it hard clearly... short comings but I was genuinely hoping that MEA meant new Mass Effect games... I hoped they learned from MEA and make the next game better but just shutting it down completely? Don't punish the franchise

Solux

Casey Hudson is the last man on earth who can still save mass effect... if it doesn't happen, all hail the new RPG masters CD Project Red

Infernocanuck

Jesus dude. You are a horrible reporter: "Sure, EA isn't actually closing down the Montreal Studio...." Titles video: "Bioware Montreal Officially Closing".

Thanks for lying to get a click. Jokes on you, I have an ad blocker, so you got 0 revenue from your bullshit scheme.

Freezing Blue

to those who are saying that andromeda being bad is EA's fault, you are wrong. Bioware decided to give their flagship series to a rookie B team studio and despite having a long development deadline, they still fucked it up. Face it, this was mismanagement on the development side not the publisher side. Blame someone only when they are actually in the wrong. I don't like EA, but i won't let that hatred blind me to who is really at fault here.

W P

Aaaaaaaand EA killed another studio and a favorite game franchise.
