Earlier this week EA shut down Visceral Studios, leaving many to wonder about the future of linear, AAA single player games. It's a complex topic, which is why we're grateful that we got to sit down and talk about it with Manveer Heir, a 12-year veteran of the industry who worked on games including Mass Effect 3, Andromeda, and Wolfenstein (2009). We also dig into issues of representation, toxic work cultures, harassment, and talk about how to make the games industry a better place. We're optimistic, we swear—it's just gonna be a lot of work!
