BioWare Austin, known for Star Wars: The Old Republic, are taking its episodic action-RPG, Shadow Realms, back to the drawing board.

According to Kotaku's conflicting inside sources, some massive changes are happening in regards to Shadow Realms' development. One of its sources claims that Shadow Realms was given an overhaul in late October in order to give it a full story campaign instead of its episodic 4 vs. 1 adventures (which was possibly akin to Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer). Shadow Realms is rumored to now have a 2017 release for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Two other inside sources claim that Shadow Realms was cancelled entirely. Corroborating this idea is another source that claims BioWare Austin's online servers for testing Shadow Realms (which had the code name 'Avalon') were disconnected. The same day Avalon's servers were removed, new servers for a project name of 'Trafaglar' were added. BioWare community manager Eric Musco mentioned that Shadow Realms was "absolutely not cancelled" on a Reddit post in December.

After EA's developmental MOBA, Dawngate, flopped and closed, BioWare Austin could have gotten pressured by the company to reboot the game or close down its development entirely. Stay tuned and we'll provide up-to-date coverage on this would-be BioWare title once more information is released.
