The follow-up to Mass Effect 3 will arrive between late-2014 and mid-2015, a developer at Bioware has revealed.
Speaking with Gamer Syndrome, Mass Effect 3 producer Mike Gamble said that the game will be revealed sometime in 2013.
Last month, executive producer Casey Hudson had confirmed that Bioware had begun work on “a completely new Mass Effect game.” Gamble reiterated that fact, saying that the game had only recently gone into full development and hence nailing down a firm release window would be difficult.
"Late 2014 to mid-2015. I honestly can't tell you an exact [date] because full development on the game started a month or two ago,” he said.
The new Mass Effect game will be developed at Bioware Montreal and, like Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, which is also currently in development, it will utilise DICE’s famed Frostbite engine.
The most recent game in the franchise – Mass Effect 3, released earlier this year to overwhelmingly positive reviews. The game currently stands at 93 on Metacritic (Xbox 360 and PS3) and is a firm game of the year contender.
