BioWare has hired a new senior narrative director in former Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy lead writer, Mary DeMarle.
As spotted by Video Games Chronicle, DeMarle updated her LinkedIn page over the weekend with the news. She comes to her new role following an extended stint at Eidos Montreal since around 2011. While there, she was in a lead writing role on most of the studio’s Deus Ex titles. That included both 2011’s Deus Ex Human Revolution & executive narrative director on its sequel Deus Ex Mankind Divided. More recently, she was senior narrative director on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Currently, we don’t know which games specifically she’ll be working on at BioWare. We’d say it’s probably a safe bet to assume she’ll be working on the next Dragon Age and Mass Effect games, however. The former of those two finally got its formal title last month, with the fourth game in the RPG series officially named Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.
DeMarle’s departure from Eidos Montreal comes after the studio changed hands in May. The Embracer Group snapped it up – along with Crystal Dynamics and a number of Square Enix IP – in a deal worth $300 million USD. In the sale, Embracer Group nabbed the aforementioned Deus Ex and Tomb Raider among others. However, there’s no word at the moment if a new adventure for Adam Jensen is likely to start development any time soon. (A new Tomb Raider, meanwhile, is definitely coming.)
Hopefully, we’ll be hearing more on Dragon Age: Dreadwolf later in the year.
