In the midst of the news of the retirement of Bioware’s Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk as well as Dragon Age III: Inquisition, it has been stated that a new full Mass Effect game is in the works! In a blog by BioWare Edmonton and Montreal’s General Manager, Aaryn Flynn, he states.
“Executive Producer Casey Hudson and his team are coming off an amazing eight-year run with the Mass Effect trilogy. But they’re not done yet. We are releasing more multiplayer content and we have more single-player stories coming throughout the next six months, including Omega which is coming in the Fall. But the Mass Effect universe is vast, and Casey and our teams have plans for another full game. “Where to go next?” with such a project has been a question a lot of us have been asking, and we’d all love to hear your ideas.
Both Dragon Age and Mass Effect started as single games but grew into vast universes. But we aren’t stopping there. While Casey continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology.”
This is an incredible pile of news from BioWare that is sure to cause some anxious chaos within the gaming universe. Will Mass Effect 4 start new and officially stray away from Commander Shepard’s trilogy once and for all? Or will some starving fans get to experience a highly wanted continuation of the series (yes please)?
