Mass Effect 4 – Bioware has plans for another full game (and a new IP)

Mass Effect 4, Dragon Age 3 and an all new IP? Things couldn't get better.

Posted By | On 18th, Sep. 2012

This might not come as a shock to much of you, but hearing about it so early does. Mass Effect 3 was released in March this year to tremendous acclaim and sales (and a lot of controversy), and the team is already working on a new Mass Effect game. Not just DLCs, a full new game in the series.

Aaryn Flynn said this in his letter on the BioWare blog after he talked about the retirement of Doctors Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, the founders of BioWare, and went on to talk about the company’s future.

“Executive Producer Casey Hudson and his team are coming off an amazing eight-year run with the Mass Effect trilogy,” Flynn wrote. “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.”

He then dropped some really momentous news. “But the Mass Effect universe is vast,” he continued, “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.”

Of course, this isn’t an official announcement, but it’s better than something. We’ll take it.

But what about those new IPs fans have been begging for? Is BioWare just going to milk two franchises from now on?

No. The devs are working on something new as well. Flynn wrote that the teams are working on an all new IP based in an all new world and built on an all new engine, while also reaffirming that a new Mass Effect is being developed.

He said: “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.”

Sounds pretty exciting to me.

BioWare also officially announced the third game in the Dragon Age series, Dragon Age III: Inquisition yesterday. More details here.

We recently posted an article on what we would like to see in Mass Effect 4. Read it here.
