BioWare has hired Mary DeMarle, the writer behind many of Eidos-Montréal’s biggest games, according to a recent update on her LinkedIn page that can confirm she’s won the role of Senior Narrative Director at the EA subsidiary. DeMarle’s new job follows her nearly 15-year stint with Eidos-Montréal, where she most recently served as the Executive Narrative Director for Marvel’s Guardians of Galaxy, an action-adventure game based on Marvel’s popular superhero team that has received substantial acclaim since its release last year, including best narrative from The Game Awards. She also served in a similar role for the modern Deus Ex games, overseeing story development for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and creating the “underlying story” for its predecessor, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It’s unclear what DeMarle’s first project with BioWare might be, but the developer is currently working on new installments to its hugely popular Dragon Age and Mass Effect franchises.
