This news may come as shocking to some, but Mass Effect 4 might actually still be in early development. The Bioware Montreal director, Yanick Roy, says they haven’t even settled on a name yet.
It might be disappointing for some to hear, because many were expecting the game to be unveiled at E3 this year. It looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer to engage in new adventures in the Mass Effect universe.
As for the details so far, Roy was intentionally vague, but he did state that there is not a cannon ending to Mass Effect 3. To paraphrase his response, the game doesn’t have to be a direct sequel. It could easily be a prequel, or a side story. The director even said it doesn’t necessarily have to include appearances from familiar characters.
There was a rumor that the new Mass Effect would be called Mass Effect: Contact, and take place during the First Contact War, but, the name aside, there is no confirmation as to when the new game will take place, or what the premise will be.
