BioWare was able to knock down many of its game enthusiasts with a bombshell message. Starting from August 26th, the BioWare forums will be closed, which means that the public boards for Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and legacy BioWare titles will no longer be available. The Star Wars: The Old Republic forums are the only ones who have been spared from this “social media” clean up.
The reason behind this though decision according to the dev is: “With so many great things so widely available, our developers today find themselves spending more time on other sites, and less time in our own forums.” Sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and others are all included in the “many great things” category.
“Because we know there is a lot of information on there you may want to keep, the public boards will remain in a read-only state until October 25, 2016. After that date, they will be
taken down.” The social media will raise while the traditional forums will move to a “dark closet”, this seems to be the trend.
