BioWare develops high-quality console, PC, and online role-playing games focused on rich stories, unforgettable characters, and vast worlds to discover.

Since 1995, BioWare has created some of the world's most critically acclaimed titles, including Baldur's Gate™, Neverwinter Nights™, Star Wars ™: Knights of the Old Republic™, Jade Empire™, Mass Effect™, and Dragon Age™.

BioWare operates in Edmonton (Alberta, Canada), Montreal (Quebec, Canada), and Austin (Texas, United States). In 2008, BioWare was acquired by Electronic Arts, a leading global interactive entertainment publisher.

After the retirement of the two remaining BioWare co-founders, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, Matthew Bromberg became the current group general manager of the BioWare label.

The BioWare group consists of following studios:

BioWare Edmonton
The original BioWare studio, it is responsible for most of the games released under the BioWare label, including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and the ongoing Dragon Age series and the original Mass Effect trilogy.

BioWare Montreal
Formed in March 2009 to assist the Edmonton studio as necessary. Lead the development of DLC for the Mass Effect series as well as Mass Effect: Andromeda.

BioWare Austin
Formed in March 2006 specifically to develop Star Wars: The Old Republic (with assistance from BioWare Edmonton). BioWare Austin later began working on a new IP called Shadow Realms, but production was shelved in February 2015 in order to focus on the continuing production of Dragon Age: Inquisition and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
