When it comes to game teases, if it doesn’t involve a countdown clock, I don’t want to hear about it (and Stephen "I Like Countdown Clocks” Johnson definitely doesn’t want to hear about it). Thankfully, BioWare have done me and Steve right by tossing a mysterious countdown clock onto their official website today, as well as on the Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins sites. Does this mean we can cross off Star Wars: The Old Republic from the potential announcement list? Guess we'll find out in five days when the clock runs out.
It might be totally unrelated but at the top of BioWare’s site, there’s a drop down menu for games, and “New Next Gen Game” sits just below The Old Republic. I’m not sure if this has been up on the site for a while (and obviously BioWare has unannounced games in the works, so no surprise there), but I thought it was interesting.
Thanks for the tip zeropilot!
