This makes the game sound pretty far off from what many people expect from a traditional BioWare RPG. Pure speculation based on just a few words, I’m guessing it will be a full on new-age MMORPG (Destiny, Dauntless, that kind of thing, with small instanced experiences as part of a larger, often huge, player base) that will take advantage of many concepts that are only being explored right now, like Twitch integration and streaming interactive experiences. We won’t know for quite some time though with that delay – let’s just hope it turns out amazing, whatever it is!
