BioWare: "Our best work is still ahead of us"

Developer up for the challenge of topping Mass Effect 2, says Muzyka

BioWare's best work is "still ahead of us", says co-boss Ray Muzyka.

Speaking to CVG in London this week, Muzyka said the developer's up for the challenge of topping stellar sequel Mass Effect 2, which has received universal acclaim from the press.

"The way we approach it is that each game has to be better than the last one," Muzyka told CVG. "That's always been true for the last 20 years we've been doing this, that's just what we do. It's kind of in our culture now.

"I think the team finds it reassuring that you've done something good, you've got great sales, great critical success, but they're driven by making the next thing even better. That's what drives me."

Muzyka said he hasn't thought about how hard it's going to be to top the latest game, but he certainly sounds up for the challenge.

"If it wasn't difficult it wouldn't be worth while," he said. "Our best work is still ahead of us. That's why I'm doing it, because I think our best work is still ahead of us and that's why our teams are doing it I think."

Earlier this week we published our Mass Effect 2 review, awarding the sequel a plum 9.3. It's pretty good.
