Former Mass Effect boss Casey Hudson is working on a new ‘triple-A’ sci-fi game

Former BioWare CEO Casey Hudson has revealed more about what’s going on in his new Humanoid Studios outfit, and it sounds exactly as you’d expect from Mass Effect’s project director: “A multi-platform AAA game, focused on on character-driven storytelling in a whole new science fiction universe.”

Hudson had a long career at BioWare, going all the way back to Baldur’s Gate 2 and MDK 2, but he is best known as head of development for the original Mass Effect trilogy. He left BioWare in 2014 and thus was not involved in the development of Mass Effect: Andromeda, but returned shortly after its release in 2017 to take over as the studio’s general manager. Hudson departed again, quite unexpectedly, in late 2020, along with Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah; he unveiled Humanoid Studios in June 2021, but said nothing about his first project, other than that it would be a “brand new IP”.
