Mike Laidlaw talked to Game Informer about what he has been up to since he left Bioware. The GI Show also covered a variety of other gaming topics (see below).
On this episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, Ben Hanson, Joe Juba, Elise Favis, and Suriel Vazquez talk about Konami after Kojima by diving in deep on Metal Gear Survive. We talk about Ubisoft's stellar work keeping Rainbow Six Siege thriving with both the Invitational and Outbreak mode and also the bizarre historical tour through ancient Egypt available with Assassin's Creed Origins Discovery Tour. We take a turn for the romantic as well by talking about the intriguing little game Florence on iOS. After some great community emails, we're joined by Mike Laidlaw to talk about why he left BioWare, his role as creative director for the Dragon Age series, and why he's optimistic for Anthem.
