The next generation of Mass Effect has been in active development for some time now, and details are scarce as to what the story will entail and what changes may be being made. All we know is that it will not star Commander Shepard, and it will not take place during his/her timeline.
Mac Walters, co-writer on Mass Effect 2 and 3 and now lead writer of the franchise, tweeted recently that, “After an intense week of narrative meetings for #masseffect … The future looks brighter than ever. #NewBeginnings.” Shortly after, Mr. Walters responded to a fan asking about the lack of details regarding the game in his tweet, explaining that, “It’s early yet. I actually debated not saying anything at all, but I got excited… And wanted to share. #TooSoon?”
When it comes to the next generation of Mass Effect, soon can not come soon enough. The game is currently being developed by BioWare Montreal and will run on the Frostbite 3 engine.
