So when can you expect the next Mass Effect to arrive? Oh, don't be so impatient… Dragon Age III is coming, too, ya know.
Anyway, according to Mass Effect 3 producer Mike Gamble, the die-hard franchise fans can expect the new installment to show up between late 2014 and mid-2015, as he recently informed Gamer Syndrome .
He also talked about why development is now taking place at BioWare Edmonton rather than BioWare Montreal. …okay, no, he couldn't say why the change occurred, but he did confirm that fans don't have to worry about a significantly different presentation or style. No, it'll be all sorts of familiar.
"While I can't comment on why it changed studios, fans can expect a similar style of choices and action that they've come to know in Mass Effect. Casey Hudson is very much involved in the new Mass Effect game, as well as many from Edmonton. BioWare Montreal is a great studio and they did fantastic with the multiplayer for Mass Effect 3, so fans should know the series is in good hands."
As most of you know, I've never been a fan of the sci-fi setting, but the inherent quality of the Mass Effect franchise simply cannot be denied. And considering the time frame, it looks like the next entry could become one of the very best titles of the next generation.
