IGN notes that one of Connie Booth’s key tasks within EA will be to try to breathe new life into BioWare, which is currently working on Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.

 

The PlayStation veteran comes to EA after the publisher laid off 670 employees and abandoned other franchises, choosing to focus on its own portfolio.

 

Connie Booth has worked at PlayStation since 1997 and oversaw, among other things, The Last of Us, Spider-Man, God of War Ragnarok, Uncharted and other hits.
