BioWare has revealed development on the next Mass Effect title is “somewhere in the middle”.
@Jackmayall5757 Too late for one, too early for the other… So I guess we’re somewhere in the middle? 🙂

Currently we have no real picture as to when the game will be released, other than a few pictures to keep the fans minds wondering and a promised update sometime this year. Earlier this year we heard from an interview with Complex, Mass Effect 3 lead writer Mac Walters wants to create an entirely new stand alone storyline.
“Well, I can’t get into details, but the idea is that we have agreed to tell a story that doesn’t relate necessarily to any of the Shepard events at all, whatsoever,” he said.
“That’s what we’ve been deciding for a while. But throughout it all, one of the key things is that it has to be Mass Effect. It can’t just feel like a spin-off. It has to feel like a Mass Effect game at its heart, at its core. Just without the Shepard character or the Shepard specific companions.”
We are still waiting on confirmation of the new Mass Effect from BioWare. As for me, my money is on an E3 announcement.
