Report: Mass Effect 4 Coming Next Spring

While talking to an inside source at BioWare, who wishes to remain anonymous, B-TEN has received word that Mass Effect 4 is not only in development, but it has been scheduled for a release window of next spring. (BioWare, Mass Effect 4, PS4)

Update The source has confirmed to me that yesterday's meeting at BioWare was not about the next Mass Effect game, but rather it was held to further motivate employees to focus on getting work done.

Hard to tell

I think it would be a little early for that. Dragon Age is the big game from Bioware. They have just started working on the game last year while Dragon Age has been like 2 or 3 years now.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is being developed by BioWare Edmonton, whereas Mass Effect 4 is being developed by BioWare Montreal, so entirely possible to release 2 high quality games with a small release gap.

Not a bad idea, honestly. Bioware has been pretty quiet since their last release, and we've heard next to nothing about their new games. I smell a couple of E3 reveals...

ME4 has been in development for a while, not too long ago there was an image from the offices of someone playing it. Considering the game usually releases in spring, I wouldn't be surprised at this.

Mass Effect 3 released in March.

I know because I went to the Midnight release for MLB 2k12 and EVERYBODY else was there for Mass Effect 3.

March = Spring (21st and on) so this doesn't seem unlikely at all.

I was thinking it wouldn't be here until next Fall but Mass Effect in Spring would be amazing.

I hope so, since it is my favorite game series of all-time.
randomass171  +   280d ago
I beat the trilogy not long ago, and I really enjoyed it. The ending was kind of a letdown, but I hope that the new game will be affected by the last choice in the game. All of those outcomes can actually lead to a lot of interesting plot differences for the new game.

Entirely new plot I beleive
Ittoryu  +   280d ago
The new game is totally new plot and cast.

Mass-effect 3's multi-player was brilliant,I had to fight my girlfriend for the ds3!

Nice! I have been dying for some ME4 release date news. If true, that would be an excellent time for gaming fans to get back into the series and new gamers to jump in too.
randomass171  +   280d ago
Hang in there, E3 is just around the corner!
MasterD919  +   280d ago
Great point! The E3 trailer this year should be epic. I remember seeing ME3's a few years back and being blown away.

I'm crossing my fingers that this is not a prequel, but an off-sequel in a distant galaxy somewhere. Either way though, it really won't matter since I'll be playing it on day 1 >_<
randomass171  +   280d ago
Whatever it is, it sadly won't have Shepard. I just want to know what's going to the galaxy after the Reaper attacks and I'd like to see how Shepard impacted everyone centuries after the fact. So I agree, I want it to take place after the trilogy and not before.

OMG please be true!!
2pacalypsenow  +   280d ago
are they releasing a remastered trilogy on ps4?
TearsOfARapper  +   280d ago
It's rumored. They said they would if the fan demand is there (which it is). It's not a primary focus for them, however.
porkChop  +   280d ago
I kinda hope so, with updated graphics, gameplay, controls etc. Make all 3 games use the same combat mechanics, fine tune the Mako, fix the texture loading, etc.
Jeff257  +   280d ago
If it came with every single piece of DLC included and fixed the hacking in the first Mass Effect I would buy it again. I have all three for PC and also for PS3.

On topic I cannot wait to see more of ME4 and I just want them to take the time they need to make it an excellent game.
TearsOfARapper  +   280d ago
How I'll feel when I get my hands on the next Mass Effect.

irokster  +   280d ago
Oh please be true. I've been dying to hear some kind of next gen Mass Effect news!
Fyflin  +   280d ago
This would be awesome! Even though the next gen consoles are here it still feels like the BIG games are years off. 2015 is shaping up to be incredible.
JMyers  +   276d ago
Please be true... More Mass Effect please!
