Mass Effect 4: Where Does BioWare Go from ME3?

GI - BioWare Montreal producer Fabrice Condominas revealed recently that they have begun work on Mass Effect 4 and that the protagonist will not be Commander Shepard. Furthermore, he goes on to say that the protagonist will not be “Shepard 2” or “a soldier in the universe.” Fan reaction is mixed, as many decry the lack of closure at Shepard’s story in the most popular ending of Mass Effect 3. This statement that the protagonist will not be “Shepard 2” also leads to multiple interpretations. Since Shepard lacked many universal traits and was mostly defined by the players choices in-game, does this mean that the new protagonist will lack that degree of player input, or will the new protagonist just have significant differences in backstory and role in the galaxy?

I would prefer it to be next gen, more of an RPG like Elder Scrolls (but of course with guns), and a new story all together.

They should do a mega prequel where everyone is still a neanderthal and you can upgrade your wooden clubs and have grunting for dialogue choices.

Bioware, you should definitely bring back that unique planetary discovering 'anomaly' missions. They are sometimes creepy, giving fresh and strange shivering feelings to players, remember Mass Effect 2?

How about AI-Pilot couple's child?

Who knows, maybe there will be multiple playable characters. But if it was dreamy, I could chose Miranda between ME Trilogy characters, as next protagonist.

I think Bioware will go to more online multiplayer and less single player path.

Yeh I really did miss the anomaly missions from me2. Most people hated the random planet exploration in me1 where you would travel the surface of strange planets but I still liked it despite it being an underdeveloped idea.

where should bioware go from me3?

I'll tell you where................back to what made the first and second so effing great!
And they should let characters reproduce so you can raise and eventually control your own child through ME 4 5 and 6.
Think about it bioware.
I want royalties if you get this idea.

Feel free to pm me cause I have way better ideas than that lol.

Less than a year and EA is squeezing another Mass Effect out of Bioware? Well, I guess the loss of the Doctors has taken all friction out of the corporate machine making these decisions. Good luck Bioware, hope your devs work well under horrible schedules and unreasonable expectations, and God help you if your Dragon Age multiplayer and Mass Effect Facebook integration app don't keep up with whatever numbers Call of Duty draws when you release; that's the only true way to measure success after all in your taskmaster's eyes, and loyalty must be earned by constant success, can't have developers experimenting with new franchises or trends after all.

Great, talked myself into a depression; I'm gonna go play KOTOR and pretend I didn't write this.
