Hope you didn’t think that Mass Effect 3 was the end of the series. Because BioWare is already starting work on Mass Effect 4. BioWare Montreal has taken over the development of the next game in the franchise, but don’t worry they already have experience with the series, as they worked on the multiplayer side of Mass Effect 3. In addition to that announcement is, that Mass Effect 4 will be built upon the Frostbite gaming engine.
“To ensure a proper and effective transition, we’ll continue to be supported by the Edmonton studio through the game’s development, working with and learning from them on some critical initiatives,” BioWare Montreal studio director Yanick Roy says in a blog post. Casey Hudson will still serve as executive producer from BioWare Edmonton, but the project director will be firmly entrenched in Montreal. Roy can’t go into specifics on the new game, but he says it will be powered by Frostbite, which has been “enhanced by many of the systems that the Dragon Age III team has already spent a lot of time building.”
Those not familiar with it, the Frostbite engine was used for games in the Battlefield and Medal of Honor series, and will be used in the upcoming Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. If you have played the 2011 Battlefield 3 game, then you will know how amazing this gaming engine really is. So this is some great news for Mass Effect and gaming fans all-around. Source: Joystiq)
