Not sure what to think of Dylan being a live service game.

I don't really get the reaction to MEA. Yeah, the Mass Effect franchise is huge, but it seems like investors had unreasonable expectations. The game sold well and, considering the development challenges, I feel like it scored well. The patch updates are solid. The game will only improve. They've already done at lease one 33% price drop. It's only been out 6 weeks!

I half wonder if since Dylan is a new sci-fi franchise they're hoping for a fresh start on a flagship sf title that doesn't have series baggage/expectations.

BioWare's identity keeps eroding. So they're doing MMO-lite now? WHY? Nobody buys a BioWare game because they love BioWare MMOs. These aren't the reasons people get hyped about the BioWare brand.

I just don't understand the industry I guess.

EA apparently uses the term "live service" to mean games with regular content updates as well as community/social events like competitions.

The stated intent is to keep players active within the community. My guess is they are trying to encourage people to spend more time on Origin to boost Origin Access subscriptions and sales in general.

Dylan is said to have MMO-lite features and be built around live service. I have no idea what they mean by "disruptive new social designs for our players" (and apparently neither does anyone else). Disruptive? Wow, that sounds fun.
