BioWare's influence on role-playing games can't be overstated. From helping to design some of the first western RPGs and completely innovating in original stories alongside franchises like Star Wars, BioWare has a long history even before it was acquired by Electronic Arts.

Some of BioWare's iconic franchises are continuing with the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition remaster coming in 2021, while a new Mass Effect game altogether is further out. The next Dragon Age is also in development, though there's still so much we don't know.
