BIOWARE FOUNDERS TO KEYNOTE AT DEVELOP IN BRIGHTON 2010
BioWare founders and video games legends Ray Muzyka (Group General Manager of the BioWare Group and Senior Vice President Electronic Arts) and Greg Zeschuk (Group Creative Officer BioWare Group, Vice President Electronic Arts) will present the keynote at this summer’s Develop in Brighton Conference – 13-15 July 2010.
BioWare, respected industry-wide for its high quality, emotionally engaging and rich, deep cinematic games, has numerous highly anticipated upcoming titles including Star Wars: The Old Republic, a story-rich massively multiplayer online (MMO) title in development at BioWare Austin, in collaboration with partner LucasArts.
Muzyka and Zeschuk are the brains behind an already vast portfolio of iconic video games titles, including Baldur’s Gate, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, MDK, Dragon Age, Mass Effect and, of course, its 6.6 million-selling sequel Mass Effect 2, which was released earlier this year.
Muzyka and Zeschuk co-founded the award-winning development studio in 1995, operating BioWare successfully for more than 10 years, leading to a private equity investment by Elevation Partners in 2005. BioWare was then acquired by Electronic Arts in 2007.
