BioWare’s Ray Muzyka has said the firm would “love” to work on some new IPs at the studio after the successful release of its last newly made IP, Dragon Age.

Speaking at GDC last week, he said: “We would love to build some new IPs and settings that are different than the ones we’ve currently got while continuing to build within the frameworks of the franchises we’ve got, too.

“We’re going to have a mix of all those things going forward.”

Chances are we may see a new IP or two at E3: something Muzyka’s already promised to be a hoohah event for the developer in terms of new games.

Muzyka and fellow BioWare chief Greg Zeschuk also gave their opinion on the whole Infinity Ward/COD situation.

“It can’t be good for the industry,” said Muzyka. “Any way you look at it, it’s not good. I don’t think it’s good for that kind of litigation to occur with people who add that much value to a company. It’s just a mess. We know the guys moderately well, and we know a lot of the people at Activision moderately well, so it’s sobering.
