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.


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.

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...

Thought that too considering the release of DA

anyways for both ME and DA; please don't screw up, please don't screw up, please don't screw up, please don't screw up, please don't screw up, please don't screw up,,,,,,,,

But it's EA, I am still sour about C&C Generals 2 $h!tfest and the sorry for an excuse DA2 =___=

The new mass effect has been indevelopment for about 2 1/2 years

CJDUNCAN2098d ago

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.

randomass1712098d 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.

Ripsta7th2098d ago

Entirely new plot I beleive

Ittoryu2098d 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!

MasterD9192098d ago

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.

randomass1712098d ago

Hang in there, E3 is just around the corner!

MasterD9192098d 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 >_<

randomass1712098d 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.
