BioWare Austin has announced that its co-op shooter Shadow Realms, which was announced last year, has officially been cancelled.

“We’ve made the decision to not move forward with development of Shadow Realms,” BioWare Austin general manager Jeff Hickman wrote on the game’s official website. “We fully recognize that this news is disappointing to some of our fans, so I want to explain more behind this decision.

“While the team did amazing work on the game concept and we got lots of great feedback from our fans at events and through other game testing, right now there are other projects for the team to work on within the BioWare studios for the coming year and beyond. We’ve got an incredibly talented team here at the Austin studio, and they are excited and already deep on new projects within the BioWare family, ones that will make some great BioWare games even better.”

BioWare Austin will now shift its focus to further enhancing Dragon Age: Inquisition, the next Mass Effect title as well as other unannounced IP. However, the biggest focus for the studio will be Star Wars: The Old Republic.

“As every Star Wars™ fan knows, this is a massive year in the Star Wars universe. We have some great plans for expanding this epic game this year, and look forward to sharing the news about those plans with our players in the coming weeks.”
