The Next Mass Effect is Neither a Prequel Nor a Sequel, Chris Wynn Confirms

The Next Mass Effect

Developer BioWare has confirmed that the upcoming Mass Effect game is neither a prequel nor necessarily a sequel.

The confirmation came through the game’s Senior Development Director, Chris Wynn, in response to a fan’s query:

“Not a prequel, not necessarily a sequel either.”

The comment from Wynn that the upcoming game is not “necessarily a sequel” ties in with the previous comments from the studio stating that the original trilogy concluded the storyline of Commander Shepard and the next game shouldn’t be titled as Mass Effect 4.

The game is scheduled to release on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One sometime during 2016, but nothing is confirmed as of this instant. Certain leaked job postings also suggested that the game might feature a full-fledged multiplayer component.

Hopefully, the game will make an appearance at E3 2015 stage since the game’s Producer, Mike Gamble, has been teasing images related to the game on his Twitter Feed.

In related Mass Effect news, Level/Tech Designer at BioWare, Jos Hendricks, tried out the latest build and seemed to find the game’s combat system to be quite challenging which I believe is something good.

Despite all confirmations, I would love to see Commander Shepard in some capacity in the upcoming game – whether it’s Mass Effect 4 or something else – won’t you?
